An apple a day keeps the doctor away! was an youth exchange carried out by Erasmus + Youth in Action programmes KA1- partnership countries. In this youth exchange youngsters from different parts of Europe and Kaukasus got to know each other and their cultures, adding understanding of each other and common Europe. Partisipant groups were from Malta, Ireland, Armeania and Georgia and hosting group from Finland. Finnish hosting group composed of youngsters from Puumala and Kangasniemi, which are two small municipalities in South Savo.
There were 36 participating youngsters and 12 leaders. Collaboration between participating programme countries has been active for several years, and this time there were new partners from Kaukasus in this co-operation.
Our common theme, “health and wellbeing”, was considered in versatile workshops, and youngsters were prepared for these themes in their home countries before the youth exchange. During this youth exchange there were functional workshops, where youngsters taught sport games to one another, organized a sports event that was open to everyone and hiked in Finnish nature. In addition youth had group discussions of themes that relate to wellbeing of youth and they made posters of the most important topics. These topics, such as loneliness, drugs, friends, sports and healthy diet, were elaborated in follow-up workshops. Results of these workshops were presented in posters, presentations or through drama.
