Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles to Learners

(children, youths, adults)

ABOUT

Inspiring healthy lifestyles can contribute to a healthier, happier life through greater daily fitness activity, healthier eating habits, and emotional well-being. We aim at introducing the idea “Be active, eat healthily and be emotionally balanced”. We believe if people learn to live well, the quality of their lives and of society in general, will be enriched. We use a stimulating and exciting range of activities and adventures, taking advantage of the environment of Cyprus, to improve participants’ repertoire of knowledge on how to inspire learners to follow healthy lifestyles in their daily program, so as to develop healthy habits that will accompany them in their lives.

This course is addressed to participants of any specialization, anyone who would like to enrich their repertoire of teaching techniques and ideas in inspiring healthy lifestyles to learners. The course will be based in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. In order to conduct the practical modules, there will be study visits, to the Cape Gkreko area which is located on the South-Eastern coast of the island (by the sea), to a bio-farm and at Troodos Mountain Range. Through experiential activities and a variety of pedagogic techniques (e.g. lecture, field visits, laboratory activities) participants will become acquainted with activities that they can implement to inspire healthy lifestyle habits to their participants inside and outside the classroom setting.
