Summary what was youth exchange about:

Fifty-five (55) participants from 11 Erasmus+ programme countries came together for eight days in Agros in order to discuss issues related to healthy lifestyle, sports, physical activity, healthy eating, living and acting, in accordance to social inclusion practices. The main objective of the project was to raise awareness and build the capacity of youngsters and beginner youth workers, so that they are better able to utilize and popularize it back to their communities through methods of peer to peer education.

The exchange was based on non-formal education methods, such as creative sessions, discussions, debriefing, participant-led workshops, simulation games, video-shooting, reflection groups, evaluation sessions, etc. The participants wereactively involved in each phase of the project. The project gave the possibility to participants to share experience, knowledge and improve their daily habits to came closer to everyday issues of more healthy living in a healthy inclusive society. The project collected participants of different background, cultures, religions and geographic areas with the specific focus on fewer opportunities. This gave an opportunity to participants to see the diversity and similarity of different regions regarding the main topic and to discover other cultures, which at the same time will help to break down stereotypes and respect diversity.

As a result of the project implementation, we strengthen participants’ capacities to live healthier themselves and show others why healthy lifestyle is desirable and achievable for others as well. This project also supported cooperation of youth organizations to work on the topic of healthy lifestyle in accordance with social inclusion practices. Young participants developed their social and political skills, they understood the honour and the responsibility to be a European Citizen and finally become empowered by the values of the programme.
