Abstract

Research background. Physical activity is considered to be one of the most important opportunities for the realization of non-formal education, considering the groups of the most vulnerable persons, i.e. refugee children and young people. Physical activity and sport shape the development of human mobility and at the same time develop and strengthen all systems of the body. So the question arises, how does the development of personality occurs in the process of non-formal education? How is physical activity recognized through internal and external training / motivation factors? The above-mentioned aspects form the basis for the scientific problem of this study. The article analyses the contextualization of non-formal education development, deepens the basis of internal and external motivation in order to reveal informal education of refugee children and youth through physical activity.
