Studies have shown adverse effects of sedentary behaviour and the increasing trend of sedentariness in youth is high and increasingly global. This PhD aims to provide a better understanding of sedentary behaviour in today’s youth by using a combination of wearables cameras, accelerometers, diaries, and in-depth interviews, in an Indonesian setting. The research involves both adolescents and parents. The objectives of this research are to: (a) map and identify gaps in existing studies in physical activity and sedentary behaviour in Indonesian youth (7-18 years old) and propose recommendations for future research, (b) investigate patterns, types, contexts, and motives of sedentary behaviour among Indonesian adolescents using mixed methods, and (c) examine parental perceptions of their own and their child’s sedentary behaviour.
