ACTIVE proposes a new and fresh approach to engaging European children between 5-8 years old.

The ACTIVE partnership will co-produce a cutting edge cartoon animation that tells positive, inspiring and fun stories about healthier living, focusing on healthy eating and physical activity.

The PASEO project intends to strengthen capacities for the promotion of health through physical activity among sedentary older people in 15 nations. Nations are represented by a scientific institution (associated partner) and (in most nations) a (non-) governmental institution (coll. Partner). Capacity strengthening will focus primarily on building intersectoral structures and intraorganisational means for the promotion of physical activity among sedentary older people. Mechanisms to strengthen capacities are intended to be sustained after the project has ended.

The overall objective of the project is to foster adoption of healthy life styles among children in primary schools in urban areas of Croatia and Slovenia. This will be achieved through development and implementation of the innovative programme for health promotion (Healthy Eco Life programme). The idea is to test innovative approaches in health promotion in one candidate country and in one member state to compare the effects of proposed programme in countries with different social and cultural backgrounds as well as economic development levels. Methodology of the programme will be based on EU best practices in health promotion but complemented with ecological awareness aspect of the health. Learning about health through interactive group work in classes will be combined with practical lessons provided in natural and rural context. As a main part of the programme the school children from urban areas of Zagreb and Maribor will visit eco-agricultural farms in the rural areas.
