Abstract

香港人一向熱愛足球,因此世界盃是一個可以誘發和鼓勵青少年參加足球或其他體育運動的契機。研究發現香港青少年參與運動的情況不理想,其生活模式以靜態為主。要提升我們年青一代的運動參與,促進其身心健康,父母、學校、社會、政府都擔當著重要的角色。本文在推廣青少年參與體能活動上分享了一些歐美國家的有關研究和經驗,其中的成功個案是在個人發展層面、社群支持及環境配套上著力,成功提升兒童及青少年的體能活動的參與。如果我們能夠參考外國一些成功經驗,制定一份具約束力的政策,相信也可以促進香港青少年的健康和運動參與。

People in Hong Kong love football. Thus the 2014 World Cup is an opportunity to encourage Hong Kong adolescents to take part in football or other physical activities. However, physical inactivity and sedentary lifestyles are well documented among Hong Kong adolescents. In promoting our next generation’s physical activity and health, parents, schools, communities, and governments have important roles to play. This article shares some successful experiences from other countries and research findings in this subject area. One successful example can be found in interventions that embraced the elements of individuals’ development, social support, and environmental changes. If Hong Kong could learn from these successful experiences and tailor related policies through a concerted effort, we believe our new generation will acquire an active and healthy lifestyle when they grow up.
