Healthy Stadia was lead partner for two work packages delivered as part of the Health 25 project funded by DG SANCO (Health and Consumer Protection). The aim of the project was to improve the health of youths between 16 and 20, who currently do not have a job and are currently not receiving any education or training (NEETs).
Developing a health promotion and wellbeing concept targeting NEET groups and their associated determinants of health from 5 EU countries (UK, Italy, Austria, Denmark and France) was the primary aim of the programme.
The Health 25 project was tested in the five partner countries with promising results. The pilots were conducted by: BBRZ, Austria; Centre of Health Promotion, DK; Regional Centre for Local Development, Training and Job-integration of Young People, FR; Adolescent Centre of Ancona University Hospital, IT and Healthy Stadia, UK.
The pilots all consisted of a combination of physical activity and sports sessions educating participants on healthy lifestyles.
