Project description: 

Some may think that a healthy lifestyle is easy to achieve, but in today’s world full of junk food and people who simply have no time to cook or do sports, being healthy is quite a complex issue.
Health as a premise for a long life without illnesses and negative impact on healthcare costs should be one of the main goals for everyone. Our priority is to empower youth, in particular, to take responsibility for their health through training, workshops and other activities. For this reason we decided to carry out this project which will give the participants the opportunity to get more information about the different aspects of a healthy lifestyle (healthy food, mental health, sports…) and about the differences in lifestyle between different regions and countries. The most important thing is that participants will practice living a healthy life. Through the study and comparison of lifestyles, traditions and values, the participants will also uncover the commonalities which traverse all cultures. The participants will compare and contrast these cultures, and through multicultural team building and teamwork, they will reach a spirit of intercultural cooperation, compromise, awareness and an appreciation of the diversities.

Project Objectives:

The main objectives of the project are determined according to what we have focused on: healthy lifestyle, nutrition and sport.
