Health Promotion: Physical Education in Children and Youth
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 5699
In recent years, the World Health Organization has been warning of the serious health problems deriving from the lack of physical activity in children and youth. The rates of overweight and obesity associated with a sedentary lifestyle are on the rise, and, although mechanisms are assumed to remedy it, the administration and families have not quite identified a remedy to this problem. From the educational field, from preschool to secondary school, foundations can be laid to comply with the recommendations for daily physical activity and, in turn, guide children and young people to practice sports outside of school, which is a necessary field to add and complement the dose of daily physical activity necessary for the younger population. This Special Issue aims to promote contributions pertaining to physical activity and health in children and young people.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- School physical education.
- Sport as a vehicle for inclusion and improvement of health.
- Psychological aspects associated with the improvement of health in children and adolescents.
- Theoretical reviews on physical activity, sports, education and health in children and young people.
- Active methodologies that promote physical activity and movement.
- Methods of relaxation, breathing and mindfulness, which seek to develop physical and mental health.
- Research on physical activity and health.
