Dare to be Healthy!

Youth Workers’ Training – K1


Un Zambet Bacau Association is planning to apply for the 4thof February 2015 deadline with a Mobility for Youth Workers project on the topic of healthy lifestyle and promoting healthy behaviors among the youth from the EU communities.

Project Summary:

Sedentary lifestyles, addictions, unhealthy nutrition and disease remain one of the most salient problems in today’s Europe. This training course is a learning-by-doing experience that looks towards improvement of the quality of support systems for activities aimed at the empowerment of young people in matters concerning health. Moreover, it will focus on chances and opportunities for intercultural dialogue, opportunities for future transnational cooperation and joint activities.

It will also provide ideas and tools to youth workers and leaders on how physical activities can be used in Erasmus+ projects, provide detailed information about the Erasmus+ Programe, give the opportunity to share insights, experiences and good practices, and promote the idea that physical exercise can help in narrowing down the age gap.


Aim: to empower youth workers willing to develop & organize health-enhancing physical activities with youngsters in their communities and to promote healthy lifestyle and behaviors as a means to foster social inclusion.


The objectives are:

- To provide space and time for youth organizations working on healthy life issues among youth and healthy lifestyles both in Programme Countries and Partner Countries to present their work,

- To exchange examples of good practice,

- To focus on the debate of the state of health in different realities of Europe,

- To share realities about physical exercise and nutrition of youngsters in our communities

- To explore connection between physical (in)activity and health,

- To promote and explore concepts “sports for all” and “healthy lifestyle” in relation with youth work,

- To encourage further promotion of “sport and health-enhancing physical activities” in our communities.

Your input in this project:

- as partners of this project, you will be in charge of conducting 2 sessions during the project. One of the sessions will be about physical exercise – a demonstration of some physical activity or outdoor game; and the other one will be a demonstration of a healthy, vegetarian and simple culinary recipe that you can share with the others. It would be even more exciting if you could find something traditional from your country (I’m sure there would be some examples), but it’s not mandatory. We hope you will find this as interesting as we thought it would be.
