About

Against the backdrop of today's globalized and digital world, health promotion is facing many significant challenges that are reflected in rising socio-economic inequalities, differing governmental imperatives, economic pressures, changes in patterns of communication and technological development, as well as in the shifting community motivations and expectations. The International Conference Bet on Health aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners to exchange and share their experiences and research results on the issues of sports, well-being and health, and the role of local authorities/communities in planning, implementing and evaluating policies and practices related to public health issues. It will provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent trends and innovations, as well as concerns and practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of health promotion and well-being, sports, and local politics.

Prospective authors from all disciplinary backgrounds are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their extended research abstracts (see the details below).

Among others, the conference wishes to address the following topics in particular:

  • Public health issues and the concept of well-being (with special attention to new developments in the field of behavioural and social science theory as applied to health promotion practice and research, targeting all groups across the entire lifespan and socioeconomic gradient).
  • Health promotion through sport (using sport as a tool for health promoting outcomes or sustainable development goals) and health promotion in sports (health promotion initiatives/interventions/events performed in sport).
  • Healthy nutrition (the importance of healthy nutrition for the well-being of the growing world population)
  • Motivation and sport (motivation and behavioural change, physical activity and mental health, body image in sport and exercise).
  • Leisure, outdoor/indoor recreational activities, and sport tourism: new trends in the sport tourism industry.
  • Policy aspects: policy analysis, policy-makers and stakeholders in health promotion initiatives, sport infrastructure and sports policies, implementation and management of sports programmes.
  • The role of local communities and local politics in health and sport promotion (coordinating sports policy with health policy, 'sport for all' programmes, etc.).
  • Research in relation to emerging concepts within the field of health promotion, such as physical literacy, salutogenesis, social capital, etc.
  • Re-thinking health promotion in the digital era: new media, technological opportunities and the socio-political implications of digitized health promotion initiatives.
  • Impacts and implications of the COVID-19 situation on micro and macro levels (from the level of private choice/motivation, the issue of physical/spatial distancing measures in group sports, etc. to the level of policy redirection of funds, closure of sports facilities, effects on sports tourism, etc.)

Note: all the abstracts that are within the scope of the conference will be accepted for the review process regardless of the issues they address; the issues listed above are intended as suggestive guidelines.

Information on keynote speaker(s) is to be announced.

Stavi na zdravje (angl. Bet on Health) okrogla miza


Povezava do posnetka pogovora ob okrogli mizi, ki je naložena tudi na YouTube kanal Fakultete za turizem Univerze v Mariboru. Za morebitna dodatna vprašanja za udeležence okrogle mize so objavljeni kontakti na koncu posnetka. Za splošna vprašanja o projektu pa se lahko obrnete na e-naslov projekta boh@brezice.si.

Med izvajanjem projekta je nastala tudi brošura projekta. Vsebina predstavlja podrobnejše predstavitve posameznih aktivnosti, ob koncu tudi predstavitve vseh sodelujočih partnerjev.

Zaključuje se enoletni projekt Stavi na zdravje (angl. Bet on Health), ki ga je s številni partnerji  v začetku novembra 2019, kot nosilka dejavnosti, pričela izvajati Občina Brežice. 

Projekt, ki ga je podprl program Erasmus + Sport je sledil cilju, da vzpostavi motivacijski model, s katerim se predvsem mlade, pa tudi vse ostale občane, spodbuja k večanju telesne aktivnosti in s tem k izboljšanju telesne pripravljenosti in zdravja.  

Izbranim skupinam (mladim med 15. in 29 letom, športnikom po obdobju aktivnega ukvarjanja s športom, ženskam, ki so prebolele raka na dojkah in starejšim od 65. leta) in drugim zainteresiranim deležnikom, smo želeli, preko aktivnosti, ki so se odvijale v sklopu projekta, približati pomen športa in s tem vlogo telesne dejavnosti, saj le-ta krepi naše zdravje, izboljša psihološko stanje človeka ter nenazadnje vpliva na uspešnost v šoli in na delovnem mestu. Izbrana ciljna skupina t.i. »ambasadorjev« se je tekom projekta seznanja z različnimi inovativnimi oblikami športne vadbe, ki so predstavljene v naših gradivih. 

Motivacijski model, ki je nastajal ob številnih projektnih aktivnostih, odraža današnjo percepcijo mladostnikov o motiviranosti do športnih aktivnosti. Kaj mladostnikom in mladim odraslim pomeni brezplačna vadba? Kdaj in pod kakšnimi pogoji mladostniki in mladi odrasli vztrajajo pri vadbi/vadbah? Kakšno vlogo ima pri njihovi vadbi trener? Več o projektu lahko izveste tudi na spletni strani www.betonhealth.eu.  

O teh in številnih drugih vprašanjih so na okrogli mizi, ki se je odvijala 20. 10. 2020, razpravljali partnerji projekta – Patricija Čular, predstavnica koordinatorja projekta Občine Brežice, Anamarija Toth Kostevc, predstavnica podjetja Plus rešitve, Rok Kerin iz Plavalne akademije Roka Kerina, Marjanca Pečar, predstavnica Kajak kanu kluba Čatež ter Katja Čanžar, predstavnica Zavoda za podjetništvo, turizem in mladino Brežice. Okroglo mizo je moderirala doc. dr. Marjetka Rangus s Fakultete za turizem Univerze v Mariboru, ki v sklopu projekta sodeluje kot raziskovalna in izobraževalna institucija. Nosilec projekta in vsi sodelujoči partnerji namreč nosimo pomembno zavedanje o tem, kako odgovorno je vlagati in vračati znanje v lokalno okolje. 

Zaradi trenutnih epidemioloških razmer okrogle mize nismo izpeljali v obliki, kot smo si jo sprva zastavili. A ker se zavedamo, da so končni rezultati in predvsem motivacijski model, ki je ob projektu nastal, zelo pomembni, smo celotni pogovor posneli in ga naložili na svetovni splet. Vabimo vas, da našemu pogovoru prisluhnete. Zaključki in rezultati bodo v prihodnosti pomembno vplivali na številna področja organizacije športnih vadb, razvoja športnega turizma in vsesplošnega integralnega povezovanja in oblikovanja javnega življenja.
