Chapter 3 describes the need for T-shaped Sport, Physical Activity and Health professionals. The authors de Jong and Skovgaard give insights on how to stimulate exercise and physical activity behaviour and counter sedentarism from a socioecological perspective. This perspective considers the complexity and systems thinking necessary to promote an active lifestyle for health. Furthermore, recommendations for a T-shaped Sport, Physical Activity, and Health professional that is educated in real-life situations (“Living Labs”) are made. From inside the classroom to outside in practice, the approach is a more congruent way of experiencing and learning how to deal with complex Sport, Physical Activity and Health challenges.
