We have just finished our second international meeting, which been held in Sofia, Bulgaria. Thanks to our bulgarian partner: Bulgarian Sports Development Association we had spend 4 hard working days during which we reached another step in our project: “Start now!: Strategic partnership for health promotion among youth”.

This project is organized in the frame of Erasmus+ KA2, between 3 partner NGOs: above named bulgarian association, Social Policy an Action Organization from Nicosia, Cyprus and Health related Organization for Promotion and Prevention from Opole, Poland as a project coordinator.

The meeting was held between 30.06 and 3.07 of 2017. Those days had created possibiliteis for work on the innovative non formal education method in the frame of health education. Moreover we have prepared questionaires form for the survey related to projects aims. Finally, we had finished the introduction to the final publication, which contain project countries youth health status and health education level analysis.

We had a great possibility to share our experience on project promotion. We also talked about local level activities. Furthermore, we have created new milestones. During informal time we spend lovely time together and we will not forget Sofia which is the city full of culture and sport which the example was the Festival of health we had a possibility to participate in.

First international meeting behind us

First international meeting behind us

Just a week ago, we have finished our first international meeting, which was held in Opole, in Poland, between 21st and 24th of April. During that get-together, we have officially start our project, frame of which is ERASMUS+ Programme with Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership between European NGOs.

During those intensive, but very resultful days we had managed to set formally our partnership by signing internal agreement between our organizations. We draft future steps and plan timetable of the rest of our project, which is originally planned for almost 2 years (till the end of 2018). Now just after this superb meeting we are truly believe that fallowing two years will be outstanding for our partnership and the final outcomes will exceed our assumptions.

In few words our project’s main idea is to teach young people about health. But we would like to do it rather by giving them tool for non-formal learning, than just presenting facts and clues, like it is commonly in health education. For this purpose, we invent an innovative method of non-formal education based on modules system. And now, after project started, we will work on that method to make it easy, useful and, what is most important, interesting to youth.

Background of our partnership is strong cooperation between our organizations that now have lasted from 3 years. During this gathering, we have got to know each other even better. Bulgarian team was represented by Joanna Dochevska and Kalinka Gudarovska, Cyprus – by Ifigenia Katchie and Konstantina Katsie, HOPP – by Martyna Jaros and Piotr Jaros.
