In Lithuania and in Europe intoxicants, drugs consumption rates constantly rising every year, young people do not care about your healthy lifestyle, physical activities or eating habits. Physical activities take very small part of their daily routine and it is a major concern of our organizations and local communities. Young people often replace their free time and leisure’s physical activities by spending their time in front of computer or watching television and it’s not the best solution of youth, this behavior can also affect their health. After all, each time behaving like this young people hurting themselves.
