Projekt jest współfinansowany ze środków
Programu „Młodzież w Działaniu” Unii Europejskiej.

Europejskie Centrum Współpracy Młodzieży

On July 11-21 in the House Nasutów and Lublin an international culinary project will take place. It will bring together young people from Greece, Moldova, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine and Georgia.
The organizer of the project is a youth group called We Will Win. Project YOUTH FROM THE KITCHEN began this year and its main purpose is to give attention to the problem of eating of young Europeans.
The idea of a culinary guide for the young people came up as a result of the discussion of people participating in various international projects, who wanted to take part in exchange of cooking experience with other countries. The main aim is to promote a healthy lifestyle and healthy, rational nutrition. Cooking should become a passion and proper eating habits - remain to the end.
During 11 days, participants will have the opportunity to participate in classes of relaxation - yoga, aerobics, workshops with the waiter, cook, healthy eating, organizing a happening in Lublin, modern dance classes, baking bread, and many debates and workshops on healthy living. Participants of the project will have a look up to the back of Lublin restaurants and will take on the role of vegetables!
