Mine Vaganti NGO was responsible for the research on healthy lifestyle offer for the youth. The focus of research was on identifying the existing successful practices of education of young people to healthy lifestyles in all partner countries and within a multiplicity of sectors (Sport, NGO, fitness, nutrition). The dimensions explored pertained to participation in Sport, physical activity and healthy habits of food and beverage consumption.
Each partner organization collected 10 extant good practices and analysed the latter with a main focus paid to exploring opportunities of refinement and amalgamation (synthesis). On the grounds of the latter contribution, partner organizations developed a National Research Report detailing the existing good practices at the country level and providing insights about potential improvement as well as synergies.
National Research Reports provided the background for the Handbook.
Research on healthy lifestyle offer for the youth – Comparative Report
The coordinator of the handbook was the partner organization Mine Vaganti NGO, competent in the production of educational resources in the field of Sport.
The Handbook is a list of the existing good practices identified in the phase of research, complete with an assessment of the general state-of-the-art across partner countries and the different targeted sectors. The assessment of the state-of-the-art will be compounded by the provision of indications circa the potential refinement and contamination among country/sector practices.
In terms of target audience, the Handbook provides useful information for stakeholders within and outside the realms of Sport (Educational institutions, NGOs, experts, policy-makers etc.) as well as for interested young people. The Handbook will be promoted through thorough online and offline Dissemination.
From the perspective of the project, the Handbook is the background analysis on which partner organizations will rely for the production of a specific Training Format.
