Mapping Youth’s Health – Follow-up activities
- Short description of the activities:
The dissemination of the youth exchange carried out in Iași, following the project “Mapping youth’s health”, was realized by the Romanian team within three events.
The first event which took place on the 10th of November 2018 represented a hike in the hilly area near Iași, particularly in Bârnova Forest, where two members of the Romanian team organised a walk for a group of teenagers and enjoyed the natural beauty of the surroundings. The young people became aware of the well-being that an active lifestyle could ensure.
The second event occurred on the 23rd of November 2018 in the Sports Hall of “George Enescu” University of Arts in Iasi. During 2 hours, young people who wanted to participate in the event have been able to experience various sports, less common to the general public, such as volleyball, basketball, table tennis, badminton, therefore the activity took place under the close supervision of a sport instructor.
The promotion of the event has been made via Unifest National Festival 2018, in which all the youth and student organizations of Iași academic centre were involved.
The third event aimed at sharing the experiences gained in the youth exchange. In this respect, the Association of Young People from Iasi (Asociația Tinerilor Ieșeni) decided to apply with the youth exchange of “Mapping the Youth’s Health” project in Iași to “Gala Tânărului Ieșean”, an event organized by the County Directorate for Youth and Sports Iași and funded by the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Romania.
Although our goal was to share our experience from the youth exchange within this event and to emphasize the importance of an active lifestyle, our project was awarded by the organizers as the best project in the category “Health, Sport and Recreation”.
