Gezond groen in en om de stad [Monograph]
health - recreation - public green areas - nature - leisure activities - climate - water holding capacity - well-being - movement - physical activity

Recreatie in het groen is belangrijk voor de volksgezondheid in Nederland. De afgelopen decennia zijn de mogelijkheden hiervoor in en om de steden echter achtergebleven bij de vraag van een groeiende bevolking. Een bevolking die bovendien vergrijst, en die daardoor meer tijd heeft om buiten te verpozen. De Gezondheidsraad beveelt in dit advies aan om de mogelijkheden voor ‘groene recreatie’ in de stedelijke omgeving uit te breiden. Daarbij wordt ´groen´ opgevat als natuur in brede zin, watercomponenten inbegrepen. De gezondheid van de Nederlandse bevolking is gediend met uitbreiding van de mogelijkheden voor vrijetijdsbesteding in de natuur in en om de steden. De Omgevingswet biedt gemeenten de gelegenheid om deze uitbreiding te verwerken in visies en plannen voor een gezonde, duurzame, klimaatbestendige en waterveilige stad.

The sociology of fun [Monograph]
Fincham, Benjamin \ 2016
Leisure Sociological aspects - Recreation Sociological aspects

What is fun? How is it distinct from happiness or pleasure? How do we know when we are having it? This book is the first to provide a comprehensive sociological account of this taken for granted social phenomenon. Fincham investigates areas such as our memories of fun in childhood, the fun we have as adults, our muted experiences of fun at work and our lived experiences of having fun. Using first-hand accounts and a new approach to interpreting fun, the paradox of fun as not serious or unimportant whilst at the same time essential for a happy life is exposed. Addressing questions of control, transgression and the primacy of social relationships in fun, The Sociology of Fun is intended to provoke discussion about how we want to have fun and who determines the fun we have.

Imkers zijn gepassioneerde en nieuwsgierige mensen die graag een kijkje nemen in andermans bijenstal. En steeds vaker kunnen niet-imkers op bezoek gaan bij de imker, voor een bijzonder en leerzaam dagje uit. Dit fenomeen mag tegenwoordig een officiële naam dragen: apitoerisme. Apitoerisme combineert recreatie met het leren over bijenhouden en is wereldwijd bezig aan een opmars. Het is een bijzondere niche binnen de vrijetijdsbesteding en een potentiële bron van inkomsten voor imkers. Tegenwoordig hoef je geen genoegen meer te nemen met de bijenstal van de buurman, je kunt namelijk ook op ‘Api Experience’ of ‘bijensafari’ in landen als Vietnam, Trinidad en Tobago, Turkije, Uganda, Italië, Spanje en Slovenië.

Running across Europe : the rise and size of one of the largest sport markets [Monograph]
Scheerder, Jeroen \ Breedveld, Koen \ 2015

Over the past forty years, running has developed into one of the most popular physical leisure activities in Europe. An estimated 50 million Europeans are engaged in running as a way to stay healthy and/or to challenge themselves and there has been a marked surge in running events all over Europe with more people running marathons than ever before. Analysing in-depth data from over 11 European countries ₆ including Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Spain -- this collection explores this phenomenon and addresses issues of participation, governance, cost, health and the history of running. Drawing on this unique material, the volume sets out policy challenges and marketing possibilities for maximising the current opportunities provided by the running market.

Agrarische kinderopvang is populair. Het aantal opvanglocaties groeit. Maar wat is dat nu eigenlijk, agrarische kinderopvang? Wat zijn de kenmerkende aspecten ervan? En wat voor mogelijke effecten hebben deze aspecten op kinderen? Ouders zien bijvoorbeeld dat kinderen contact maken met dieren. Maar wat betekent dat? Wat is het belang en effect ervan? Ook zien we op opvanglocaties dreumessen die steeds weer nieuwe dingen ontdekken en worden uitgedaagd tot bewegen. Wat is hier het belang en effect van? Literatuuronderzoek, observaties van onderzoekers, een ouderenquête, interviews met ouders en een project met BSO kinderen geven antwoorden op dit soort vragen. Ook andere aspecten zijn te vinden in deze brochure. Een uitgebreidere beschrijving van het onderzoek is te lezen in de achtergrondrapportage (http://edepot.wur.nl/365902).

De rol van gemeenschapstuinen in Amsterdam : verkennend onderzoek binnen het veranderde proces van voedselproductie [Student report]

hobbies - gardening - urban agriculture - urban environment - allotment gardens - vegetable growing - use value - social change - public participation - leisure activities - social interaction - food crops - amsterdam - netherlands - food production

De geschiedenis van gemeenschapstuinen waarin de productie van voedsel een rol speelt is in Nederland het meest bekend als de volkstuin. Door toenemende welvaart na de Tweede Wereldoorlog verschuift de samenleving van uitkeringen en voorzieningen naar een vorm wat nu beschouwd wordt als de verzorgingsstaat. De betekenis van tuinieren op grond van economische motieven leek hiermee volledig verdwenen. Op de Amsterdamse volkstuinparken wordt nu steeds meer geëxperimenteerd met thematische tuinen en het principe van ecologisch tuinieren naast het verblijfsrecreatieve element.

Dit weekend barst muziekfestival Welcome to the Village weer los. Drie dagen lang kan het publiek genieten van muziek, performances, lekker eten en drinken en hopelijk mooi weer. Maar Welcome to the Village wil meer zijn dan een bron van vermaak. Er wordt hard gewerkt om het festival duurzaam te maken. En daarme onderscheid Welcome to the Village zich van andere meerdaagse muziekevenementen. Zo worden er groenten uit eigen tuin geserveerd, vlees van de eigen koe Janneke opgediend, urine verwerkt tot meststof en op ingenieuze manieren energie opgewekt. Welcome to the Village is daarmee een dorp op zich!

Volkmar, Fred R.. \ Reichow, Brian \ McPartland, James C.. \ 2014
Autism spectrum disorders - Autism spectrum disorders in children

The research on children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is extensive and growing. Although these conditions are recognized as affecting the entire lifespan, the literature on ASD after childhood is limited and has not been brought together in a single volume in over a decade. Adolescents and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders fills this knowledge gap by focusing on needs and difficulties unique to these stages of development. Expert contributors offer cogent reviews of complex issues, from education to employment, leisure activities to illegal behaviors, mental health issues to medical health concerns. The latest findings in key areas, such as psychosocial and residential treatments, social skills programs, epidemiology, the impact of ASD on families, are examined in detail. Throughout the volume, coverage focuses on areas requiring improved models of assessment, updated data, new interventions, and increased support services. Featured topics include: Transition from high school to adulthood for adolescents and young adults with ASD. Innovative programming to support college students with ASD. Romantic relationships, sexuality, and ASD. Treatment of mental health comorbidities. Assessment and treatment planning in adults with ASD. The range of outcomes and challenges in middle and later life.

De kinderboerderij, een bijzondere ontmoetingsplek \ Vakblad kinderboerderijen [Article]
Piessens, M. \ 2014
children's farm animals - school farms - recreation - non-formal education - leisure activities - communication - human relations - social interaction - social research - cultural integration

De kinderboerderij is een populaire vrijetijdsbestemming. Jaarlijks ontvangen de ruim 500 kinderboerderijen en dierenweides tussen de 25 en 30 miljoen bezoekers! Door de economische crisis moeten gemeenten steeds meer bezuinigen. Het is belangrijke de waarde van kinderboerderijen goed te kunnen inschatten, onder andere in het kader van subsidie. Naast een educatieve en recreatieve rol, kunnen ze ook een belangrijke maatschappelijke functie in de samenleving vervullen als ontmoetingsplek. Mensen van diverse leeftijden en achtergronden bezoeken de kinderboerderij, wat kan bijdragen aan sociale en culturele integratie in de wijk en gemeente.
