Muito Além do Peso

Obesidade, a maior epidemia infantil da história.

Pela primeira vez na história da raça humana, crianças apresentam sintomas de doenças de adultos. Problemas de coração, respiração, depressão e diabetes tipo 2.

Todos têm em sua base a obesidade.

O documentário discute por que 33% das crianças brasileiras pesam mais do que deviam. As respostas envolvem a indústria, o governo, os pais, as escolas e a publicidade. Com histórias reais e alarmantes, o filme promove uma discussão sobre a obesidade infantil no Brasil e no mundo.

Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Annual International Conference 2013 - Geographies of Children, Youth and Families Research Group

Call for Sessions

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is pleased to announce that the Call for Sessions and Papers has opened for its Annual International Conference 2013 (AC2013). The conference, which will be chaired by Professor Jonathan Rigg (Durham University), will have as its theme New geographical frontiers.

Please note that the conference has returned to London in August:

Date: Wednesday 28 to Friday 30 August (with an opening reception on Tuesday 27 August)

Location: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), London

Members of the geographical and related communities are invited to propose sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2013. The Geographies of Children, Youth and Families Research Group (GCYFRG) would like to invite proposals for sessions sponsored by the GCYFRG. We would welcome joint sessions with other research groups.

The RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2013 has a theme of new geographical frontiers, inviting exploration of the many ways that frontier can be employed as a concept, a metaphor or as a point of empirical focus, such as in geographical theory, inter-disciplinary research, and the contribution and impact of geography in society and economy.

The GCYFRG is inviting session proposals (either GCYFRG sponsored or co-sponsored with other research groups) relating to its general interests in geographies of children, young people and families. Session proposals should link in some way to the conference theme, although this is not absolutely necessary. Further information about the research group and its aims can be found at Please note that the list of topics stated in the research group’s aims is not exhaustive and sessions relating to other relevant themes will be fully considered.

Sessions may take the form of presented papers, panels, practitioner forums, discussions or workshops. Innovative sessions and formats are encouraged. A small number of sessions containing Skype or other distance presentations can be supported at AC2013, but must be agreed with the conference organisers in advance so they can be scheduled at RGS-IBG for appropriate technical support.

Proposals for, or questions about, GCYFRG sponsored sessions should be sent to Dr Natalie Beale Proposals should be submitted by 2nd December 2012. Please send proposals to the email address stated and not my Teesside University account.

Fourth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Emotional Geographies

1-3 July 2013 at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands
Session: Children’s Emotional Geographies: Practical and Policy Matters?
Session Organisers: Matej Blazek (Loughborough University, UK) and Peter Kraftl (University of Leicester, UK)

A range of recent research by geographers and others has sought to foreground the emotional and affective geographies of children’s and young people’s lives. Often, this work has highlighted how emotion and affect provide a sense of ‘what matters’ to children and young people in ways that both resonate with, and extend beyond, other concerns (from emotions involved in participatory processes, to hopes and fears expressed with/in particular geo-political contexts). This session seeks to provide a forum in which scholars can expand thought, debate and practice about the ways in which children’s emotional geographies might matter. It begins with an assumption that emotional geographies do matter in policy and practice with children in a very wide range of geographical, historical and (non-)institutional contexts. It also seeks to question the ways in which emotions and affects are written-into particular policies and practices that are, implicitly or explicitly, produced and enacted on behalf of young people, including the modes of expression that research can use for communicating emotional geographies of children and young people. This session will provide a space for further and deeper conceptual, methodological as well as empirical engagement with emotions in relation to the policies and practices that actively shape children’s spatialities.

The session organisers invite papers on the following topics/themes, but this list is not exhaustive:
· methods, formats and strategies for communicating children’s emotional geographies to policy-makers and practitioners;

· the potential role of diverse media (e.g. Web 2.0 technologies) and techniques for communicating and representing the vibrancy of children’s emotional geographies to diverse audiences;

· critical reflections upon how, where and when children’s emotional or affective geographies might (or might not always) ‘matter’;

· the role of children’s emotional geographies in extending what is meant by the (public) ‘impact’ of academic research;

· the potential for collaborations between young people, academics, policy-makers and practitioners around emotions/affects that ‘matter’;

· (relational) emotions involved in professional work with young people (e.g. in youth work, (non)formal education contexts);

· emotions and affects in non-formal or ‘alternative’ spaces and institutions (e.g. alternative and informal education, activism, protest, intentional communities);the governance of children’s and young people’s emotional geographies, and articulations of emotion in and through discourses about young people (e.g. policy documents, websites, mass media, social networking sites);

· the conceptual differences between emotional geographies of children and adults and their practical implications in relation to policy and practice.

Please send an abstract of your paper or any other inquiries to Matej Blazek ( and Peter Kraftl ( beforeJanuary 11th, 2013. We are happy to consider alternative formats of contribution (e.g. short critical reflections). There will be videoconferencing facilities at the conference – feel free to get in touch should you be interested.

'Young people's constructions of identity in Bulgaria' Lecture by Professor Alistair Ross, Tuesday 11th December 2012 at London Metropolitan University.

This sixth lecture in the Jean Monnet Lecture Series: Border Crossings, Moving Borders, will look at young people in Bulgaria. Bulgaria is one of the least affluent counties in the European Union, and its young people are being socialised into a complex and heterogeneous set of social structures. The young people in the study comprise a generation born into major changes, and have developed their ideas of their identity in greatly different circumstances to their parents and grandparents. Based on focus groups in three different locations in Bulgaria, the research included a wide variety of young people.

Social identities are increasingly recognised as being both multiple and constructed contingently within a context that for some includes the idea of Europe. Young people are developing identities that may include a range of intersecting dimensions, including gender, age, region and European. Understanding how new young Bulgarians construct their idea of Europe, their role in it, and what it means to be European will be of value and importance to a very wide audience.

The lecture will take place on Tuesday 11th December 2012, 5.30-7pm in Room T1-20, London Metropolitan University, 166-220 Holloway Road, London N7 8DB. The lecture is free of charge but places are limited.

Please feel free to print and circulate the attached flyer and forward this e-mail to those who you think may be interested.

Occasional Papers: After-School Time

Occasional Papers invites contributions to a special issue on After-School Time

After-school time, once reserved primarily for informal social activities, has become a source of increasing concern for adults who see these hours as crucial to the academic and social development of healthy young people. Much of the research and policy related to after-school time echoes these concerns, placing emphasis on the need for structure and surveillance, and focusing on assessment-driven outcomes. Yet, for many children and youth, the after-school hours are more than “school outside of school,” providing a space for autonomy, non-school activities, or “hanging out” with friends, on or offline. With potential differences in adult and youth perspectives in view, this special issue of the Bank Street Occasional Papers seeks to answer the questions: What do young people value about their out of school hours? What else might after-school time offer, other than more school?

After-School Time will provide a forum for discussing the lives of school-aged children and youth outside the classroom. In particular, we are interested in research that explores young people’s experiences in after-school spaces including, but not limited to, patterns of participation, relationships among peers, and between adults and children. We have identified three kinds of spaces, mindful that after-school geographies overlap, to organize our inquiry:
Institutional Spaces

Despite a great deal of interest in after-school programs from researchers and policy-makers, there has been little consensus on which of these programs are successful, or even on how success should be defined. While some see after-school programs as ideal spaces for arts-based activities that are no longer available in many schools, others see them as places for academic remediation and test-preparation. These choices, while reflecting the need for programs to produce demonstrable outcomes to secure funding, often leave little room for engaging young people in making decision about their discretionary time. How might we revitalize youth decision making in after-school programming? How do we support activities and engagements that matter to the way young people see their lives?
Public Spaces

Long considered a nuisance to society, young people’s use of public space such as malls, parks, and libraries, is often highlighted in debates about after-school time. Youth bodies and youth activities are produced as inherently dangerous in the public domain, and cited by adults as justification for increased surveillance and regulation. Research is only beginning to explore the effects of geographical privatization on young people’s lives. How are young people using public spaces? What tensions occur between young people and those who govern public spaces, and how are these tensions being resolved?
Personal Spaces

While access to personal space continues to be mediated by a variety of economic, social, and cultural factors, young people in the highly industrialized countries spend an increasing amount of their after-school hours in personal spaces. Teens’ bedrooms, in particular, have become important sites for leisure and learning where they are increasingly networked through vast media resources. What roles do these personal spaces, or the lack thereof, play in young people’s after-school time? How are young people’s personal after-school spaces affected by changing definitions of private and public life?

We encourage submissions that include audio or video recordings, photography, or graphic art, in addition to traditional written analysis.
