SPORT: AN AWAKENING TO THE SELF-NATURE

Letícia Parada Moreira, Fabio Giordano

Abstract


The objective of this essay was to reflect on the importance of sport in ecological interactions. In the past, human being had a close relationship with nature, but with modernization, the human population has become isolated from natural environments. It has already been proven that man-nature interaction improves quality of life and promotes sustainable behavior. The sport practiced in nature is a means of rapprochement with nature, however, the unsustainable exploitation of the natural resources harms the nature as it is the case of some sports modalities. Thus, it is essential to understand the extent to which sports practitioners perceive nature and how they transform behavior and transfer the values derived from it to urban life.

Keywords: Sports in nature; Man-nature relationship; Ecology.
