Special Issue Information
Physical activity among adolescents is a key topic for the positive development of public health. As the level of physical activity decreases from children to adolescents and a sedentary lifestyle becomes more common, health authorities and laypeople are both struggling to turn this situation around for the benefit of later adult health. The youth of today is faced with a plethora of activity choices, and their interests change from being active to sedentary. The aims of this Special Issue are to report the level of activity among adolescents in different cultural and geographic settings and to close the knowledge gap on how to activate youth for a continued active lifestyle. We would appreciate studies that look at adolescents and physical activity from different viewpoints: The transition from childhood to adolescents, and from adolescents to adulthood, as well as physical activity in different geographic, cultural and religious settings.
