"A healthy life is a better life" is a youth exchange that will take place from 14th to 20th July in Puente Genil (Córdoba) and which involved two organizations: Towarzystwo Leborskie Oswiatowe (Poland) and Youth Local Assembly (Puente Genil).
Participants will be aged between 16 and 17 years and include a total of 31 participants, of which 7 are group leaders and / or organizers.
This project arises from the need which we detected among young people in this age group related to healthy lifestyles, because today many young people have a sedentary life, with bad eating habits and they start drinking alcohol and consume other drugs.
Therefore, the main goals we propose this project are:
- Promote a healthy lifestyle
- Promote mutual understanding between young people from different countries
- Promote active European citizenship among our young people
- Bringi young people to new ways to spend their free time
Meanwhile, the main activities of the exchange are aimed at the following topics: workshops about healthy nutrition, alcohol and drugs, healthy lifestyles, knowledge of both cultures (Polish and Spanish), outdoor activities, creation and management of a blog, visiting Cordoba and ecological garden and dancing workshops.
The methodology used to perform this type of activity is based in non formal education and, mainly, on the active participation of young people through group work, creating poster and slogan, presentations, gathering information and drawing conclusions, creativity in creation of choreography and other artistic creations, group dynamics, debates ...
In general, the results we expect the implementation of this project are related to the acquisition by the participants of skills and competences within the non-formal and informal learning with a European dimension, improving language and communication skills , improve their lifestyle, eliminating harmful to their health. It will contribute to their personal development, active citizenship and physical fitness.
Furthermore, the impact we would like to have this project, firstly, is directly linked to the participants, who will try to improve their lifestyle, more European awareness will be created by opening their minds in relation to other cultures and young people to continue with interest to participate in activities at European level.
Likewise, it will also provide an impact at local, national, European and international level, because the dissemination and exploitation of results will create interest in other groups by subject and by associations and allow us to work in the medium / long term in future projects with other partners.
