Description of the project:

The idea to organize this project came from the beautiful minds of EVS volunteer Chris the Bacon from Romania and amazing Youth Club Active members Lera Stepanova the Eater, Alexandra Ruzu the Zuzu , and Makar Medvedjev the Diver.

Working together, they filled in the application form, involved partners and built the timetable. This was the first experience for most of them to write a project. Some people believe that if they don’t eat healthy all the time and do sports all the time they are having an unhealthy lifestyle. Also, some people go in the opposite direction and ignore healthy eating and any kind of physical activities. We aim to show that there is a middle ground. The idea of this Youth Exchange is to promote a „balanced healthy lifestyle” among youngsters that can help them discover the lifestyle that works best for them.

One of our aims is to help young people discover and create fun and healthy activities they can do to stay in shape. Also, throughout the project we want to show alternatives to fast food and how food can be cooked easily, but in a delicious way.

Throughout the project we will engage in a number of outdoor activities, cooking lessons, hikes and sports that can help us achieve our goal. During the project we want to hear about the positive and negative aspects of being a professional athlete and having a serious food regime. At the end of the project participants will be required to share what they discovered throughout this YE and ways to disseminate it.




To promote the idea of a „balanced healthy lifestyle” among young people (16- 23 y.o.) that can help them discover their own individual healthy path and exchange experiences.
