Improving the quality and accessibility of education in modernization processes in Serbia (MESTD - 47008)


The modern society's agendas are filled with the activities which are designed to improve the quality of life of an individual, family, community as well as the entire society through physical activity and exercise. Many documents of professional, scientific, and even political international bodies and organizations, as well as the documents adopted at the level of individual states, deal with public health and activities aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles and providing all citizens with the opportunities to engage in Law on Sports which have become one of the priorities included in the development agendas in this millennium. Both national and international documents and initiatives include recreational sports, in addition to citizens' individual activity, at the core of professional effort and political action, sharing a common goal of achieving health benefits significant to both individuals and the entire society through mass physical exercise. The subject of this paper referred to the documents and practices of recreational sports assessment and organization since 2006 - full state independence of the Republic of Serbia. The aim of the paper was to examine the things done so far as well as the position of citizens' physical activity within the future social development agendas.
