Brief description Lack of physical activity and the time that young people spend sedentary, especially the time they spend alone, staring into television and computer screens, are major public health issues. This Future Fellowship research programme will explore how changes in physical activity and sedentary behaviour might influence health and wellbeing in young Australians. It will also involve the evaluation of an innovative school-based intervention targeting these outcomes. This project has the potential to bring physical and mental health benefits to current and future Australians.
