The VII International Seminar on Physical Education, Leisure and Health will be held at the Institute of Education, Minho University, in Braga, Portugal, from 19 to 22 July 2011. This seminar is rooted in the Institute for the Child Studies, Minho University, nowadays called Institute of Education. Six editions have been held, and in the meantime other national and international researchers and institutions have been integrated in the organization. This has given a wider coverage with better quality and depth of knowledge in this area of knowledge.
This seminar, by tradition, brings to debate issues as important as Physical Education and Sport, Recreation and Health. These issues can give an important contribute in the present postmodern context, which is characterised by problems related to education, physical and psychosocial health, moral values and ethics. We expect this VII International Seminar on Physical Education, Leisure and Health, will be a moment of scientific reflection, production and dissemination as well as an important moment for opportunities and change.
