  1.  How is physical literacy defined nationally and internationally? 

  2. What are the components/elements of physical literacy?

  3. What are the key philosophies, concepts, and principles that underpin physical literacy? 

  4. Are there any benefits/outcomes of physical literacy, and what is the quality of this evidence?
