Special Issue "Education for Sustainability in Physical Education"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Interests: Alternative sports; Active transport; Healthy lifestyle
The benefits of physical activity and sport in health are evident, as well as their role in the prevention of several pathologies and cognitive and social problems. Physical education represents one of the basic tools to initiate, from an early age, healthy habits that contribute to physical and mental well-being. Likewise, this educational area has various resources that support an active lifestyle, developing knowledge of the body and its possibilities, generating adaptive behaviors and expanding responsible attitudes toward the environment and the resources it uses.
This Special Issue aims to explore the current state of this outlook, delving into the current causes linked to unhealthy habits and bad practices in sports in different contexts. It will explore the relationships between psychosocial factors and the association with different aspects related to physical activity and sport. Furthermore, this issue is open to reviews, and descriptive or experimental studies that contribute new knowledge to this area, as well as new methodological proposals related to physical education in different educational stages, such as alternative sports and responsible physical activity practice. This Special Issue will focus on this topic and its solutions, what our current state of knowledge is and future directions for promoting responsible physical education with healthy development and social practices and a knowledge of the environment and its resources from childhood.
