Maintaining appropriate levels of physical activity (PA) and physical fitness is essential in developing healthy lifestyles in children and adolescents. The evidence that activity and fitness are directly related to health outcomes in younger people is becoming increasingly persuasive. To promote health, wellness and fitness in young people, researchers must develop appropriate strategies that are consistent with individual needs, interests and skills. The increase in rates of overweight and obesity is the result of multifaceted determinants and their complex interactions over time. Schools, via the curriculum, school ethos and community, are an ideal context for educating young people about the importance of PA and the value of achieving and/or maintaining health-related fitness standards and for building the necessary skills for long-term behaviour change and healthy lifestyles.
Many school-based intervention studies and education programmes promoting PA and a healthy lifestyle have been performed over the last two decades, so the scope of the SI is to collect the most recent studies and projects aimed at increasing knowledge and research experiences carried out in socio-educational context (i.e., school and sports associations) and based on physical activity and sports programs addressed to children and adolescents’ physical education for prevention of risks and promotion of health and wellbeing.
