The idea came from the project leader who is finishing her master’s degree in nutrition of food technology, she considered the youth’s lack of physical fitness against their will learning to cook and doing leisure activities and came to the conclusion that youth is willing to learn and gain informal knowledge which helps them to be more patient and compassionate while being healthy and aware of the food they eat.
The project follows the motto that a healthy youth representative is also an active member of society. Knowledge transfer will play an integral role as the primary method used during the exchange. Other methods include the HAT method, role playing and Iive library. They will be based on the principal of active participation, learning through practical activities, mixed group work and interaction.
