Project description:
One of the most important stakeholders in the young person’s surroundings are youth organizations, and with this project we want to draw attention especially to the role of youth organizations in creating a healthy lifestyle of young people, linked to all areas of health, in particular through promoting the integration of healthy lifestyle activities in their own organization.
The main activity of the project will be a seminar on the topic of healthy lifestyles in youth organizations for youth workers and youth leaders from different countries across Europe. At the seminar, participants will learn the basics of a healthy lifestyle. Over the practical case they will learn how to implement this way of living in the activities of their organizations and they will also create gadgets to help in the implementation of the guidelines that will be developed during the seminar.
Through methods such as lectures, group work, design tools for the implementation of the project, discussions, etc., we will raise participants’ awareness of the importance of emphasizing healthy lifestyles within youth organizations and institutions that can contribute to building habits of young people, all based on non-formal education.
The expected impact is especially greater knowledge about health in general and about what can youth organization as such do to improve healthy lifestyle among young people and especially among its members. In addition, the expected impact on the participants as members of their organizations is also increased awareness of the importance of the role that youth organizations have in the development of critical thinking of young people and their attitudes to health. We would like that the products of the seminar would be widely used by participant after the project because in that way they would also take care of the dissemination and implementation of project objectives, and in this way influence the local, regional, national or international community.
