In this suite of activities, students develop their understanding of the role taxes play in funding sport and recreation, and the place of the federal government initiative Sport 2030. They consider the extent to which government funding supports the principles of equity and inclusion and how building infrastructure to host international sporting events support the health and wellbeing of individuals across the community.
- critically analyse impacts of factors and determinants that influence health (sociocultural, economic and political)
- undertake independent inquiries and research into health promotion campaigns or programs
- describe government roles and responsibilities for health promotion and determine their effectiveness for all Australians
- think critically about issues that influence health funding.
