The duration of the project is 12 months with the formal start on 1.9.2016 until the 31.8.2017. Each country will provide 5 participants, among which 4 of them will be young adults and 1 youth leader aged 20-29. The participants should be aged between 16 and 26. Both genders should be equally represented as well as 11 underprivileged youths that will be given the chance to participate in the project. In November 2016 (18.-19.11 2016) a advanced planninig visit will take place in Krško. The participants will include 5 group leaders and 5 youths, 10 altogether. The youth exchange will take place in Krško from 19. to 26.2.2017 (excluding travel days).The idea came from the project leader who is finishing her master’s degree in nutrition and food technology. She considered the youth’s lack of physical preparation against their will of learning to cook and doing leisure activities and came to the conclusion that youth is willing to learn and gain informal knowledge which helps them to be more patient and compassionate while being healthy and aware of the food they eat.The project will follow the motto that a healthy youth representative is also an active member of society. The integral parts of this project are also previously mentioned 11 youths with financial, social or physical disabilities. They will all be equally included in the project and in its activities for they will also plan them to the best of their abilities. Knowledge transfer will play an integral role as the primary method used in this project. Other methods include, the HAT method, role playing, live library and so on. They will be based on the principal of active participation, learning through practical activities, mixed group work and interaction. The main activities will include diverse physical exercises; introduction to an athlete’s day to day, the principals of healthy food and its preparation, an open debate of current affairs (immigration, EU, equality and democracy,...), cultural evenings with stage performances, viewing the world of energy as well as Erasmus+ and Youthpass workshops. Using health and sports as tools to improve live quality will bring us closer with local organizations in Krško who will be able to participate in many activities with our youth, including making healthy smoothies, fresh food desserts, sports activities and many more already listed above. The dissemination plan includes the integration of the local environment into the project itself. After the return to their countries the participant will organize some activities and competitions based on sports and healthy food preparation. They will also prepare a standard project presentation for the youth, media publication and produce a cultural live library.The aim of this project is to provide the youth with new knowledge, new skills; to increase their participation as well as bringing awareness to equal opportunities for all.During the project the youth participants will create a webpage which will include all the information on the project, healthy food recipes, photos, EU workshop conclusions, media responds . . . the website will remain active for at least two years after the end of the project. The participants will also get Youthpass at the end of the project.
