Understanding the Social and Environmental Factors for attending Physical Activities in Duzce City: Supports and Barriers.

I attended 15th International Congress of Social Sciences with Current Research with the support of COST Action  CA19101 DE-PASS.  It was held in Istanbul Turkey, during May 21-23, 2022. 15th International Congress of Social Sciences with Current Research is the premier interdisciplinary forum for social scientists, life scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, developments, and applications in all areas of social sciences and humanities, behavioural sciences, Socio-Cultural Issues, sustainable development, health and welfare.

My Study is titled “UNDERSTANDING THE SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS FOR ATTENDING PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES IN DUZCE CITY : SUPPORTS AND BARRIERS”. This study is related with WG3 and It will be useful for emphasizing the; measuring physical activity behaviour determinant profiles; neighbourhood, backyard access/size, green space access… briefly environmental design and social- demographic features. We prepared this study with my master students who are the young researchers in the area of recreation and physical activity. After this conference we are planning to study on factors affecting the participation of Generation Z in physical activities in Turkey. I thanked to Cost Action CA19101 De-pass for their support and offered participants to follow depass website. (https://depass.eu/)
