​Physical literacy (PL) is a multi-dimensional concept that provides a holistic understanding of movement and physical activity. PL consist of an emotional, a physical and a cognitive domain, which together lay the foundation for the individual's capacity and propensity to participate in movement and physical activities here and now and up through life.

To support an individual's development in physical literacy, it is important that an activity is perceived as meaningful here and now. In a physical literacy approach to physical activity and movement, the individual's feelings and attitudes are thus as central as, for example, the physical competencies in relation to experiencing meaningful participation in an activity. Physical literacy is promoted through its core areas: the emotional, the physical and the cognitive domain while being true to the multidimensionality of PL, ensuring that the effects are synergetic. It is therefore important to know the importance of each of the domains to support a positive development in physical literacy.

​This seminar dives into the emotional domain - including intrinsic motivation and self-confidence - to spread knowledge about and create a better understanding of children's feelings and attitudes related to physical activity. This will help researcher in areas of prevention and public health to design effective physical literacy intervention, and it will help practitioners in schools and sports clubs to create learning environments that stimulate the emotional domain in all children.
