Physical activity and sedentary behaviour interventions for children and young people: From Robust Research to Reality in Practice
The 16th Annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) will be hosted in Liverpool for the first time this July by the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences (RISES) . In advance of this, a one day symposium organised by the Physical Activity, Exercise and Health (PAEH) group is taking place on 5th July to develop a critical analysis of physical activity and sedentary behaviour interventions with young people. The symposium is split into 2 main sections which also allows for physical activity professionals and practitioners to get involved.
The central theme for the day is to help academics recognise the strengths and weaknesses of completed interventions to date whilst also considering the potential advantage of more complex interventions.
Day: A physical activity based symposia for academics, health care commissioners and evidence users which will involve discussion around the design of physical activity interventions across pre-school, primary and high school age children and young people. Thirty posters will be accepted with prizes awarded. The closing date is 15th May 2011 for poster competition entrants.*
Evening: A physical activity symposium for physical activity professionals and practitioners which will discuss translating and using research messages and evidence to plan deliver and evaluate physical activity programmes. Delegates are invited to submit programmes for a symposium award. To do this, please download the submission form. The closing date for Marketplace entrants is 13th May.
*Please note that relevant poster submissions in line with the conference themes submitted nationally/internationally within the last 6 months can be considered for inclusion at the symposium.
