PHYSICAL Literacy network denmark
PLnet (Physical Literacy Network Danmark) is a nation wide network for debate and knowledge across disciplins, profesions and sectors. PLnets members share a common interest in physical literacy and the networks goal is to create collaboration between practice, policy and research.
In short, our vision is to support that all Danish children achieve optimal physical literacy.
To achieve the vision and purpose, PLnet's mission is to influence practice and policy through the following strategic focus areas:
Networking and collaboration between PLnet's members
Knowledge sharing and compliance between PLnet's members
Advocacy and debate directed at practice and politics
Training and capacity building aimed at practice
Danish common understanding
In recent years, a number of stakeholders from various sectors have engaged in translating the English concept of physical literacy. Physical literacy is translated by various actors into movement competence , or used synonymously with the concept of bodily formation . The great interest in the concept has led to a number of different definitions and understandings.
To be able to understand, promote and develop the concept in a Danish context, a wide range of practitioners, politicians and researchers from a number of organizations and institutions worked with a common Danish understanding of physical literacy at a national seminar (Nyborg, January, 2019).
