Move for health

HOPP in Italy :)

From 18 to 25 of September we participated in the project "Move for health" organized by CSA from Italy.

"What we aim to achieve trough this project is to offer to the youth people the opportunity to discover and reflect about what may be the benefits from a correct and wellbeing lifestyle and experiment in their own. We want also that the physical activities and eating healthy, become tools to promote among youth active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity.
Therefore, through this project we would like to reach the following specific aims:
- to support the social and educational growth of young people, promoting social inclusion, respect for the others, integration and diversity;
- to encourage the integration of young people with fewer opportunities;
- to encourage young people to lead an active life in a society where people are sedentary and inactive;
- to promote the knowledge of other cultures and the comparison on the different behaviours and habits about nutrition and physical activity;
- to support young people in creating a lifestyle based on health and wellbeing in a broader sense (physical, mental and social);
The first exchange will be dedicated on the issue of sedentary life: we will organize outdoor activities (games on the beach, volleyball, beach soccer, water games, short boat trips) during which we will embroil the participants in activities for underline the advantages of sports and active life. In the meantime, we will arrange also round table of discussion and confrontation where every participants can explain and share their personal experience (habits, behaviours and ideas) about the advantages and disadvantages of a sedentary or dynamic life habits.
During the second exchange, we will focus the attention on the theme of a correct nutrition way of life. Then, we will realize food education activities as for example cookery workshops and games where participants will learn some techniques and methods for cooking healthy, learn to know what are seasonal fruits and vegetables, what are the proper food combinations (consumption of meat, fruit, cheeses, pastas and grains, etc.) to a correct diet. Moreover we will organise moments of discussion among the participants and with professional and expert figure, for example regarding how to reach a correct food behaviour and then prevent serious health problem, such as heart diseases, obesity, anorexia or bulimia.
The youths at the end of the project will acquire information and significant knowledge to change the way of thinking, acting in relation to health matters and will be more mindful of the problems that can lead to sedentary lifestyles and incorrect food behaviours. In addition they will increase awareness on the importance to identify common values with people from different countries in spite of their cultural differences and challenge viewpoints that perpetuate inequality and discrimination."

20-28th of September in Zakopane was held our youth exchange under the Erasmus + Programme called “Next step to healthy Europe”. Participants were from 4 European countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Lithuania and Poland in total number 34 young people. Main topic of the exchange was connected with health promotion, especially in the field of patient’s rights. During 9 working days participants have learnt how to build and implement a health campaign among local society (in that purpose they used several IT skills). They shared their knowledge about first aid in advanced cases. All activities were provided in non - formal education methods. As a results participants prepared patient’s rights codex and implemented after the exchange among their local societies. Another effect was the project’s mind map, which have been preparing constantly during everyday evaluation and in the end it showed every piece of health aspect of the whole project.
