The aim of this study was to identify the interests of young people in their occupation of free time that configures the experiences they have lived and to analyze what they would like to live in terms of leisure, but that, due to some impending factor, do not do so. The research is linked to a larger study: “Leisure in Brazil” that analyzed the ways of living leisure in the national territory. The article dealt specifically with youth leisure in the southeast region and the information was collected through structured interviews. Despite the existing differences due to the socioeconomic situation, gender, and education of young people, we identified the relevance attributed to leisure in the company of friends, confirming the socializing and unifying role of groups through leisure. The analysis pointed out the economic and educational inequality, reflected in the access to leisure activities and justifies the need to abandon a homogenizing view of youth.
Article developed from the data collected in the research "The Leisure of the Brazilian", subsidized by the Ministry of Sport (ME) Process No. 23072.021366/2011-35
