During the project, partners were collaborating together, but working at the same time in national teams. The aim was to design and develop creative, innovative and effective methods, on the issues concerned in the project. All partners worked at the beginning on providing a unified educational template based on which all training modules were developed – the template contains: energizers, main activities, evaluation and dissemination – all based on common assumptions. At the same time, each partner organization, undertook the responsibility to develop specific educational modules, based on their experience and expertise. For this reason, a different approach was provided on each subject, even though all followed the same template.               

During the project, in total 20 educational modules have been developed, ready to be used by youth leaders. In total 4 categories of issues (different areas), were approached with each category composed by at least 5 educational modules. These are as following:

1) Environmental Health

2) Healthy Diet

3) Health Promotion and Prevention Diseases

4) Physical Activity                             

All modules are suitable for both youth and adults. Modules have been adapted to specific age of beneficiaries (topics, methods, knowledge). Each module holds a number of stars, dividing the level of difficulty: one star module (*) is dedicated to the youngest, two star modules (**) to teenagers and three star modules (***) to students and even adults.            

The Coordinator/Leader, do not have to be experts on a specific subject to conduct any of the workshops developed and proposed during the project. The Coordinator/Leader has the opportunity to choose one or more activities proposed under a specific module, or even combine methods, from different modules. In this way methods, apart from innovative are also universal and convenient. In addition to the curricula proposed, each module is accompanied by infographics which may be important material to the facilitators/leaders implementing the modules. Many of them constitute a collection of knowledge or curiosities which can help in non-formal education process.
