Young People Planning the Changes
Slovenian youngsters in February continued with the planning of their activities within the project Start the Change. They carried out weekly meetings at schools. For example at Primary school Zreče youngsters are dealing with the challenge of healthy food habits and researching different healthy menus in different cultures. They are interested in what their peers know about it so they composed a survey about the topic. At Secondary school Zreče they are working on the lack of extra-curricular activities and through that looking for options for intercultural bonding. At the Primary school Loče they’re planning to carry out workshops on how to build a positive self-image.
A youngster attending Primary school Zreče stated: What I love most about this project is that we were able to choose the theme and which activities we want to organize by ourselves.
In March more working sessions are coming about also on other participating schools. If you want to know what their projects are about, stay tuned for our next article.
