Person x Environment Interaction and Its Effects on an Active Livestyle

A physically active lifestyle is useful for our health and well-being. Nevertheless, there are still people who do not engage in enough physical activity. Social-cognitive approaches are dominating the field of activity promotion. Although, interventions are showing varied and especially non-sustainable effects. This research project extends this perception with a social- ecological perspective. Besides the analyses of personal factors for example a person’s attitude, the project also investigates the influence of the physical (built) and social environment on the organization of a physically active everyday life.
