IN DETAIL

Physical activity and well-being in schools

The project aims to develop and evaluate school-based interventions aimed at increasing levels of physical activity among students at the start of secondary school, thereby promoting a feeling of well-being. Lack of physical activity in this age group is a growing problem. Taking regular physical activity can enhance the psychological as well as the physical health of young people. The "participatory learning" intervention will run through geography lessons using GPS; and a "personal coach" intervention will be linked to physical education classes. Both will involve student participation and collaboration with teachers.
