This youth exchange will gather 25 youngsters from 5 youth organization active in the social field around Europe: Italy, Croatia, Romania, Poland and Turkey for some activities hosted by Connect association in Vasto, Italy. Using non-formal education methods, this group of young people will have the great opportunity to cooperate, develop intercultural attitude, reflecting on their potential, acquiring news skills and competences, learn and share ideas, become more creative and improve their personal and cultural experiences. They will cook together traditional and new healthy food, discuss and learn about nutrition, make collage about habits, share their traditions and dances, prepare and perform a show in town to highlights good practices, to be recorded and disseminate. As outcomes they will prepare a healthy cuisine e-book or prezi presentation, video about healthy recipes and a brochure with a workshop to promote healthy habits for other youngsters.
