The Empower yourself youth exchange, in which participants from Latvia, Italy, Turkey, Spain and Poland took part, took place in Biały Dunajec in August 2022.
During youth exchange we were search for the answer for question: ” What is Being Environmentally Friendly? ” and we focused on the following points by discussing and finding common conclusions:
(a) To explore the concept of healthy lifestyle
(b)To discuss current issues related to the nutrition and sports through sharing good practices and experiences related to prevention of diseases caused by lack of exercise and poor eating habits.
(c)To provide participants with theoretical and practical opportunities to improve their physical and health competences;
(d) To empower youngsters to multiply competencies gained during the Youth Exchange in their local communities by spreading outputs of the project (Calendar, project video, press releases, photos, future local and international projects);
(e) To promote non-formal education and Erasmus+ Programme as a support tool for health education;
(f) To raise participants’ awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries, offering them the opportunity to build networks of international contacts, to actively participate in society and develop a sense of European citizenship and identity.
The programme also provided a space and time to experience in practice different levels of motivation, find the answers for many common questions and exchange experiences from different countries.
One of the effects of the exchange was the flashmob organised in Zakopane (Krupówki street) for local society, promoting international dances and healthy habits.
The other effect is the healthy living calendar 2023, which you can download here:
