Sesc São Paulo remembers influential Director

Renato Requixa, the former Director of Sesc São Paulo, an ISCA member and renowned promoter and provider of physical activity and leisure opportunities in Brazil, has passed away. Requixa was an influential figure in the development of the leisure sector in Brazil and worked at Sesc from 1976 to 1984.


Requixa was a member of the Leisure Committee Direction of the International Association of Sociology. He was a leading sociologist and researcher in leisure studies in Brazil at a moment when leisure was established as a field of study in the country. One of his main publications was the book "O Lazer no Brasil" (Leisure in Brasil) in 1977 and co-authored some of his works with Joffre Dumazedier, who worked as consultant for Sesc São Paulo.


ISCA and Sesc São Paolo extend their condolences to Renato Requixa's family and remember him for his contribution to the physical activity sector in Brazil.
