Abstract

Many previously conducted interventions aimed at promoting healthy physical activity, sedentary and dietary behavior of youth have shown limited effectiveness, especially on the long-term and among youth from disadvantaged populations. Strikingly, those most in need are the most difficult to reach e.g. youth with a low socioeconomic status or from ethnic minority groups. One explanation for the difficulty in reaching the target group could be that the target group is seldom involved in the development of interventions. This may result in interventions that do not align with the needs and interests of the target group, resulting in low participation rates and/or low effectiveness of interventions. Involving the target group may be essential to match the interventions to their needs and interests, which may be key to increasing effectiveness and sustainability of interventions. This webinar addresses how Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) may advance health promotion: how can we optimally collaborate with youth in YPAR? What are advantages and challenges? How can we obtain valuable scientific output from YPAR? How can we evaluate the effectiveness and process of YPAR?
