Video: What is Physical Literacy?


By Physical Literacy for Life project partners

Physical Literacy, like other literacies, is a key component of people's lifelong learning journeys through physical education, physical activity and sport. That's why we're excited to present to you an animated representation of the Physical Literacy concept based on the outcomes of the Physical Literacy for Life Erasmus+ project.

The Physical Literacy for Life project brings together partners from the education, sport and health sectors, and includes the International Sport and Culture Association, Denmark (lead), European Physical Education Association (EUPEA, Switzerland), International Physical Literacy Association (UK), Macquarie University (Australia), Human Kinetics Faculty of the University of Lisbon (Portugal), University of Strasbourg (France), Steno Health Promotion Research (Denmark), BG Be Active (Bulgaria), DGI (Denmark), Sports Union of Slovenia, and UBAE (Spain).

The project highlights the importance of everyone engaging in physical activity during the life course.
