This collection of essays celebrates the 70th birthday of Professor Roland Naul. The chapters, written by colleagues and friends, illustrate the development of sport and physical activity research over four decades.

The objectives were to give an overview and update of relevant fields that determined the academic work of Naul and to give new insights. Chapters have been grouped under the following aspects: secondary education and vocational training in Germany and Europe, with a focus on sport qualifications and professions; old and new challenges for the Olympic Games movement, as described from the perspective of different countries; health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA), a key policy area which Naul has contributed to shaping in the European Union; the relationship between sport pedagogy and social pedagogy; a focus on the well-being of athletes, with contributions tackling the prevention of harassment or doping; and finally, sport policy on a local level.

This commemorative publication acknowledges the merits of Roland Naul for European studies in physical education and youth sports, as well as for the sport policy context in Europe.
