The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are part of the United Nations 2030 agenda for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. Goal 3 from the SDGs, “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”, is focused on health promotion and reinforces the importance of well-being. One of the targets from this goal is ‘by 2030, reduce by one-third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being’.
The impact of physical activity on health is well established, especially chronic diseases and mental health. Furthermore, endorsing physical activity is often considered as an important strategy to promote health for all. Physical activity brings significant benefits for peoples’ health and can have an essential role in helping to achieve the SDGs, especially the health-related goal 3.
Research interest in physical activity and its potential as a health-promoting strategy has been increasing over the years. Meaningful investigations on this topic can help public health, education, and social authorities to make more informed decisions and undertake meaningful action in promoting health and help to achieve SDGs goal 3.
This Special Issue of MDPI’s Sustainability entitled “Physical Activity and Sustainable Health” is open to scientific articles from all disciplines investigating:
- The impact of physical activity on health and well-being;
- The role of physical activity in promoting sustainable health;
- The use of physical activity as a strategy to promote health for all.
