Konya42youth as a youth group we believe that all individuals and society should be vaccinated health awareness to achieve the expected quality of life in the rapidly developing. In this case we believe that the biggest barrier front of the youth health is obesity that is the most dangerous illness that WHO. explained. Obesity is a public health problem that develops depend on genetic, environmental and neurological reasons and it brings lots of chronic illness with itself. It is raising up undevelop countries also develop countries. With technological development effects, poeple start to move less. However, changes such as diet and lack of physical activity that can not be prevented in the style of some adversities in the prevalence of obesity in the world comes together. In 2008 there was more than 1,4 billion obes, but in 2015 there is more than 2,3 obesity person in the world. The situation same in Europa like other regions. There is More than 50% of the European population is overweight condition. In contrast, the European Union according to the proportion of respondents reported physical activity on a regular sporting activity in the EU member states in 2014, but it may well have been 8%. In 2009 this figure was measured as 9%. As a result of inactivity among the causes of obesity besides diet mistakes it is also an important place.with all of these reasons, in annual global cost of obesity is approximately two trillion dollars and this cost is closed to cigarette consumption, war, cost of guns for terror and this cost is more than global warming cost and alchol consumption. This situation shows that we need to take care about it. Although obesity is a global disaster, people are not have enough awareness about it. Therefore, we want to create awareness against obesity in humans and to organize the project to attract people's attention. This aims are directly related on with European Youth Strategy's one of the priority areas of Health and Welfare, healthy lifestyle and our project will support interculturel learning.
