A Child in Motion

It is our great pleasure to inform you that Science and research center Koper, Institute for kinesiology research in cooperation with University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Sport, University of Primorska, Faculty of Education, Univerity of Maribor, Faculty of Education and Community Health Center dr. Adolf Drolc Maribor are organizing 9th International Scientific and Professional Conference “Child in Motion”. The physical activity is the integral part of children’s behaviour and constant communication with the environment that is why it is essential for a harmonious development of children. Today’s “screened” lifestyle, that the society designs and offers to young people certainly does not encourage daily exercise/sports, furthermore, the need to move which accompanies the human throughout the evolution is unfortunately fading.

The novelty of the conference are the technical workshops “Active in kindergarten and school”, which aim to demonstrate the newer approaches that are used in practice.

Official language
