Active Devon, Travel Devon and Devon County Council have launched a new, digitally enabled community movement challenge.
Running over the summer, Let's Move will offer Devon communities a chance to move more, celebrate local communities and win great prizes.
Let's Move is also an inclusive celebration of every community across Devon, as well as how physical activity and movement can help us all, as both individuals and as communities, shape a better future for ourselves, the environment, and those around us.
Built around the maxim that 'a little change makes a big difference', Let's Move offers everyone in the county the opportunity to connect online with those in their community, inspiring and supporting each other to be more active.
By connecting in new ways, and by engaging with our bodies and our environments through movement, Let's Move will highlight the power of being active.
Using innovative digital technology, Let's Move will use a community-based model to engage local towns, villages, wards and parishes to get involved and lead the change in their own lives.
The challenge will centre on 'moving minutes' which will either be recorded via smartphones, wearable activity trackers or be entered manually.

Due to the heightened safety situation and the necessity for continued precaution, social distancing, and care, Let's Move will also support people in Devon to best understand and adhere to the evolving coronavirus situation by providing direct access to Government guidance.
Active Devon CEO Matt Evans said: 'Over the past months we have seen the strength of Devon's local communities and people embracing the importance of staying active, either at home or safely outdoors. This new challenge combines both, and supports other campaigns and initiatives designed to help people to be active.'
