“Project “HEALTH” (Happy and Exiting Activities Towards Health)
Start date: Dec 1, 2014, End date: Sep 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Health of young people has always been a very important concern and since our youth group implemented a project related to health and active lifestyle in the past, we came to a conclusion that there are many reasons why we should popularize healthy and active lifestyle among young people so we decided that this youth exchange would be a very suitable way how to do it. Objectives of our project are to motivate young people to pay attention to their health situation, to give education to young people about health issues and active lifestyle, to make young people to create and implement ideas for popularization of healthy and active lifestyle among their friends and local communities and to give education to young people about skills needed to implement their ideas, to make young people to realize that need for an active and healthy lifestyle is something in common for all young people and that participating in activities with aim to tackle health issues can be something that can bring young people from different countries together, to improve cultural awareness among the participants of the project. We plan to involve in our project 25 participants aged 18-30, that are interested and motivated to learn, to create and implement their ideas and to be willing to try to improve the attitude of their local community towards health issues, participants that feel a need for a social and their own change towards more healthy and active lifestyle, also young people that feel a need for learning, for new experiences, for new knowledge and skills, for being creative and active in order to become more employable. We plan that almost all of participants would face different difficulties, like chronic health issues, economical problems and/or long time unemployed young people. Planned working methods and activities are going to be: ice breakers, energizers, games for getting to know each other, discussions, group works, presentations, writing, drawing, brainstorming, making of posters, group building activities, team work on creating of innovative ideas for promotion of a healthy and active lifestyle that might be implemented in the future in their local community in their countries, detailed planning and creation of these ideas (might include discussions, writing, drawing, making short movies, taking photos, participating in different workshops about various aspects of planning mass events, making up a presentation of the whole idea with its practical outcomes), preparation for sport activities and doing of sport activities (football, badminton, volleyball and basketball), watching of educational movies, visit of Doliana high school and care center of youth and children(NAME??) to present their created promotional material for healthy and active lifestyle and to estimate the reaction of youth, interactive presentations of home countries and cultures of participants, trips to learn about Greek history and culture to archaeological place of Dodoni and Ioannina, hiking in area of Monodendri village and sightseeing at Vikos gorge (of Monodendri), Greek coffee time and games in Aristi village, evaluation activities. We expect participants from this project to gain inspiration and motivation to tackle health issues among young people in their local community, to gain better attitudes towards health and active lifestyle, towards cultural diversity and towards being an active citizens, to create network with their team members and possible with participants from other countries in order to create and realize ideas that would tackle health problems among young people. We desire that our project would give a positive impact also on our regional society of Epirus, we hope that people and young people particularly would get inspired to think more of their health and change their attitudes towards healthy and active lifestyle. As longer term benefits, our project would popularize active and healthy lifestyle among young; implementation of our project would give more experience to all involved organizations and individuals who would work on the project; many skills, attitudes and knowledge of involved participants would be improved and they would become more experienced and employable, as well as participants would get more open to learn about other cultures.
