This stream comprises experienced and emerging researchers with a shared interest in many aspects of physical activity and sedentary behaviours among young people, including: measurement issues; determinants; epidemiology; secular trends; interventions; and associations with child and adult health status.

Our group is committed to the advancement of research in this field through:

  • improving access to relevant information for fellow researchers and public health professionals
  • developing networks of current Australian and New Zealander researchers in this field, and
  • providing opportunities for emerging researchers to share their work and plan their future research directions.
