In today's world of fast food and prepackaged meals, it is often difficult to stay on the “straight and narrow” when it comes to healthy eating. To help keep youngsters on the right path to a healthy lifestyle we organized the Youth Exchange "Live Long and Prosper" that will took place in Blansko, Czech Republic from 01.12 to 10.12. 2015 and joined together 33 young people from Czech Republic, Macedonia, Turkey, Hungary and Slovenia. We did this project to reach the main aim which was: improving the lifestyle of young people in the partner countries through: eating healthy organic food, exercising, doing yoga and meditation and living in harmony with nature.
During this exchange we focused on creating a friendly, relaxed non-formal atmosphere in which participants felt free to learn and share their experience, developed their ideas together with the rest of the participants. We believe the topic of healthy lifestyle and of a healthy environment is really important especially for youngsters in development and it is much better to learn about it from each other as they had the chance on the youth exchange through different types of activities that we had organized.
The activities were based on non-formal education and focused on active participation, team work, stimulating creativity and getting new knowledge and skills. We used methods and activities such as: ice-breaking games, name games, getting to know each other and team building games, energizers, group presentations, work in groups, facilitated discussions, exercise, outdoor activities, audio and visual methods etc. The schedule of the activities was structured in a way that the participants explored different topics every day (food, exercise, yoga and meditation and environment) and as we went through the days and the topics we got to the conclusion that everything is connected, that by practicing a healthy lifestyle in the same time you are practicing living in harmony with nature. Overall the expected impact was achieved to raise the awareness about the health and the environment so the participants form now on can make changes in their daily habits.
The main result of the project was the creation of a booklet that promotes healthy lifestyle, that we published and shared among the partner organizations, for the other youth workers to use in their future projects.
