Time, if you ask a young person to participate in an activity or volunteer for something chances are that you will get a reply that they do not have free time. We see that young people have less free time and the free time they have, they want to spend sleeping or just unwinding. We see how young people have so much stress either related to school work or to finding employment.
Through all of these we find that young people find no time to participate in any sporting activities or exercises and this leads to a very unhealthy lifestyle. We see that young people are suffering from medical problems like diabetes and obesity at very young ages. This is also as a result of an unhealthy diet. We have undertaken many projects focusing on youth, especially with sports and healthy lifestyles, looking at the various factors that influences our choices. This project will examine the underlying problems or reasons for these problems from the perspective of young people. Is our educational system to intense? Are our options for healthy diets limited? Where is the missing link between information and knowledge regarding a healthy lifestyle? These are some of the questions we want to answer during this project so that we can share the answers with young people all over Europe.
