summary of the project

Childhood  overweight  and obesity  has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.Eating fast food  and  drinking cola effect  children’s health .
Childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health.
Immediate health effects:
  • Overweight  children are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure.
  • Overweight  adolescents are more likely to have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels indicate a high risk for development of diabetes.
  • Children and adolescents who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and psychological problems.
Long-term health effects:
  • Children and adolescents who are obese are likely to be obese as adults  and are therefore more at risk for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer.
  • Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for many types of cancer.
  • Healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases.
  • Schools play a particularly critical role by establishing a safe and supportive environment with policies and practices that support healthy behaviors. Schools also provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.
  • Families play a particular role by establishing a safe and supportive environment

he  schools participating in this project  are pursuing  a comprehensive education of their students  both academically and personally.As educational centres,our role is to pass  on knowledge.Our purpose is ,through a reflection on the educational objectives ,to prepare healthy men and women of tomorrow,able to lead their personal ,civic and professional life responsibility ,with the ability to get used to different situations and be  healthy  ,creative and supportive.
      The common goal  of the partner schools is to make available to all students the necessary tools for their physical, mental ,spiritual ,intellectual and human development ,so they can progressively assume  their responsibilities and preparation for their future life  as healthy citizens.Therefore,the schools involved will try to encourage their  pupils a love for learning,increasing the awareness of being healthy ,developing their  creativity and foster them to take part in cultural and physical  activities,as well as to complete their physical training and promote their participation in  civic life.  In addition to this, our  goal is to build strong relationships between people,schools and cities that will not be finished with the end of the project.  This participation of pupils in civic life  should not be limited to a local l or national level.We know very well  that the doors of European Union  are open to  everybody  who want  to  improve  their personal,professional ,academic  development.   Our mission as teachers and schools is to provide such access and to make available the undeniable advantages that it offers.We have,therefore,decided to undertake this school partnership ,structured around the theme  ‘’healthy  life styles and healthy food habits.
     We believe that our project will be the connection platform  with Europe and its pupils will foster the sense of belonging to a same community.Because the childhood overweight ,hormoned food ,sedentary life  and  unhealthy food habits   problems  have more than doubled   in all over the Europe and the problem is getting bigger and bigger .
So; the main theme of our project is the  healthy life styles and healthy food habits. Because we believe  that  an active life style and healthy food habits  are  very important in humanlife and there is  a strong evidence that maintaining an active lifestyle and healthy food habits  provide  important physical and mental health benefits. Nevertheless,Turkey and  Europe have been suffering from sedentary life , unhealthy food habits and overweight problems  in childhood   recently.Unfortunately; As a result of the  overuse of technology , sedentary life  and  unhealthy food habits;,some kind of illness such as obesity, diabetes, cancer  and  stress  appear on body .For these reasons,we need to combat for sedentary causing the obesity, overweight ,cancer, diabetes and stress (mental health) by promoting a more active and healthier lifestyle and quality of target groups’ life by having them gain health eating habits. In addition to this, we need  to promote   the European cooperation in the methods, trains and informations concerning the healthy life .
Another main theme is: through classroom and physical education activities, we aim  to increase activity, improve dietary quality, and decrease inactivity.  Because we think  that  such healthy lifestyle habits can help prevent overweight, and if sustained, can lower risk factors for short term-long term illnesses.
To prevent all these ,we want to make a movie about healthy life and healthy food habits with 28 students aged 6/12  and 21 teachers from Czech Republic,Greece, Italy,Poland,Romania,Spain and Turkey  we believe;they  will  also have the opportunity to have a chance for  both learning and having fun during the activities.
      As mentioned above; Our priority is to make a movie that is the result of the necessary cooperation of different partners assigned to healthyANDhappy using as a vehicle the framework of the European Project Erasmus + and Etwinning platform.This implies the advantage of participating and benefitting from an international collaborative work and together with providing our project with a multicultural diversity that will enrich  it significantly.
  Education partnerships provide an opportunity to motivate pupils to learn from their peers and from their school culture and family  while practicing skills related to ICT,with clear educational objectives.
Another major objective is to develop English language skills and gain confidence in communicating in English of all project participants,learn how to work with digital Technologies related to work with the  filmed material as filming itself-either camera or the camcorder.
Finally,we hope that participants of mobilities will get many skills that could help them be more successful in the future labor market.Our aim is to enhance students’ creativity and their love of learning and strengthen lifelong desire to learn.
