Fernando López Noguero, Mª Luisa Sarrate Capdevila y Mª Paz Lebrero Baena

International organizations emphasize the basic right of everyone to enjoy leisure because of the contribution it makes towards peoples self-realization.

This article seeks to determine the specific features of the leisure of young people in vulnerable situations, by identifying its characteristics and the influence of passive leisure and the Internet.

This is carried out through various interviews with key informants, such as young people in social difficulties and the social workers who work with them. A qualitative methodology has been used and for the analysis of content, the Atlas- ti program version 6.0. The project undertaken has helped to identify specific interventions for meaningful leisure, to define the main trends in virtual leisure and to characterize strategies for improving enjoyment.
