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.

The first objective of the EEN project is to raise political, institutional, and scientific awareness of the relevancy of local, long-term, and multi-stakeholder approaches to healthier lifestyles, in particular childhood obesity prevention.
The second objective is to enrich existing methodologies and produce concrete guidelines transferable to countries willing to deploy an Epode-like programme (http://www.epode.fr/). EEN will focus on Epode approach and its four pillars: political awareness, willingness, and involvement; good practice of scientific evaluation of community-based interventions (CBI) and its dissemination; network expertise and social marketing approach; legal and ethical framework of public-private partnerships.
