“You-th & Heal-th”
Erasmus+ Youth Exchange for youths organized in Ureki, Georgia by “Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance”, “Youth For the World” and “Inovativy Karta” in partnership with Fundacja "Zielony Słoń" (Poland).
Summary of the project
Organisation “Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance” (UK) & Network of youthEducational organisation “Youth For the World” (Georgia) & “Inovativy Karta” (Lithuania) together its partners initiates a project “You-th & Hea-lth" with participants involved both in youth field, healthy life and conscious lifestyle.
Due to the common experience in similar fields, we have noticed that consumerism culture is taking too big part in daily life. This could be especially damaging for young people who start to compete with each other because of "better" as "more expensive" things. Young people often are not able to make a conscious decision in life because they are not aware of consuming habits and different experiences towards it. Beside things, there is also hyped food, which is most of the time not only unhealthy but also damaging health though might be considered as "cool" among young peers. We see consumerism, as bad habit for health and society.
Due to the mentioned reasons, we would like to bring young people to the more conscious life style level when they consume only when they really need it instead of choosing things and food because it is trending. It would bring us to another level: being healthy and being conscious at the same time. We believe that healthy soul exists only in the healthy body therefore daily physical activities will be included as well such as learning how to work and live in the garden and in the nature. We aim to learn how to live mainly from what you can grow and find in the nature. Such physical activities are most natural exercises for human beings.
