Health Points Multiplier Event: How to support health promotion among disadvantaged young people?
How to support health promotion among disadvantaged young people and prove attractive access to information on health prevention and education?
On March 23rd, the Multiplier Event of the Health Points project took place at the Santa Chiara Oratory, Palermo – Italy.
During the event another project was presented, MATCH project – Social Inclusion opportunities which aims to promote education and sport through social inclusion. The event was attended by many people interested in learning about methods, tools and resources that gravitate within educational issues and aimed at disadvantaged young adults.
The core objective of the project concerns the possibility of providing educational, recreational and innovative resources to support health promotion among young people who have economic, cultural and social disadvantages.
All project objectives can be summarized as follows:
- To develop an educational game based approach.
- To provide an attractive access to information on health prevention and education for young disadvantaged adults.
- To foster key competences, such as ICT skills, reading and writing, social and civic competences.
- To equip trainers, educators with an innovative tool to promote awareness on health related topics
To meet these challenges and promote wider social inclusion, Health Points has been formed as a strategic partnership to develop innovation in health literacy in adult education by developing, testing and/or implementing innovative practices, creating new curricula, courses and accompanying learning materials and tools for tutors and trainers that support disadvantaged young adults.
