HEALTHFIT – Promoting wellbeing in youth is a Training Course focusing on wellbeing and healthy lifestyles. It will take place in Palermo from the 15th till the 23rd of November.

It will involve 32 participants from 15 countries: 9 from Programme countries (Italy, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Lithuania) and 6 from Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine).


Healthfit addresses an important and critical question: healthy lifestyles. During the last decades people started to adopt bad eating habits and inactive lifestyles with negative consequences on their wellbeing. We see an increase of health and psychological problems: cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes, low stress resistance and other serious problems.


Healthfit, according to the European Commission decision to include wellbeing and healthy lifestyles into the main priorities of the 2014-2010 Erasmus+ Programme, aims at raising awareness among the young generations of the importance of the prevention of diseases through the promotion of active lifestyle and healthy diet.

In detail the training course will:

  • Provide youth workers with new and outstanding skills and competences in the area of healthy diet and importance of constant physical activity;
  • Increase awareness of the youth workers on the importance of the healthy lifestyle habits in the life duration perspective and how it has effects in every day routine, as well as the perspectives in the labour field;
  • Facilitate the exchange of experiences, traditions, cultures, sports, recipes, best practices, habits and promote cooperation in the field in the EU and Eastern Partnership countries.

For this purpose the training course will use non-formal and informal methodologies fostering active participation and the learning process of participants.

Join us!

Intercultural Dinners open to the local community: on the 16th and 17th November 2014 you have the chance to meet people from all Europe and Eastern countries, taste their traditional food and specialties, listen to good music and spend beautiful time with Healthfit’s participants!
