About the project

“Start now!: Strategic partnership for health promotion among youth” is a project in the frame of ERASMUS+ Programme Key Action 2: Strategic partnerships. The main objective of the project is to promote a healthy lifestyle among youth off all ages. The project is implemented in 2017 – 2018, in three European countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus and Poland.

Aim of the project

The project aims to implement, in different youth organizations, innovative methods of non-formal education about health awareness. The result of this method will be a change of the attitudes of young people to healthier and expand their consciousness of health promotion.


The project is implemented by the Health Related Organization for Promotion and Prevention "HOPP" from Opole (PL), in partnership with: Bulgarian Sports Development Association from Sofia (BG) and Social Policy and Action Organization from Nicosia (CY).


The implementation will be preceded by statistical analysis conducted among project’s participants, which consequently will become a base for developed publication. Tools for achieving these goals will be a series of international meetings, as well as pilot training course, which will be attended by youth workers.


The result of these activities will be an innovative, based on a modular system, non-formal method of working with youth, which will be implemented in different organizations and institutions in the project countries. The method will be implemented through Non formal Education Centers – “NEC”, managed by partner organizations. Their main task will be dissemination of developed results among local youth organizations. The established method will be described in details in the project’s publication and distributed in European institutions. For the widest possible dissemination the Method will be settled in the form of an interactive and international youth Portal. Closing action of the project will be an international conference and Open Days presenting the results of a strategic partnership.
