Summary

Physical Literacy across the World records the progress of the concept of physical literacy over the last decade. It examines developments, issues and controversies in physical literacy studies, and looks at how the concept has been implemented around the world.

Contributions from practitioners and researchers across the world tell unique stories of the way physical literacy is changing perceptions of physical activity through research and the generation of scholarly writing, the creation of new national and local policies and the development of partnerships with a range of professions. The book argues that physical literacy has value beyond formal education, such as in occupational and recreational settings as well as for early years children and older people and shows how life story methods can explain our physical literacy journeys. At root it sets out a case for the significance and value of physical literacy as making a notable contribution to human flourishing.

This is important reading for anyone with an interest in physical activity, health and well-being, sport studies, physical education or the philosophy related to physical activity.
