The need to implement this project came in the context in which young people are surrounded by technology and fast food, things that have them drawn attention from a healthy life based on movement and eating healthy.The poll released at the European Obesity Day (May 16th 2015) shows that six out of 10 people are overweight or obese, and in 2030, the ratio could reach at nine from 10 people. Almost a quarter of Europeans do not know that obesity may be a cause of heart disease, diabetes and hypertension, fewer than half recognize the link between obesity and stroke, and only 16% are aware of its connection with cancer. Among Europeans young people, statistics show that one in seven young people is overweight or obese.Thus, the topic of the project is to promote a healthy lifestyle based on proper exercise and nutrition.
