    Let's Fight Obesity, it's not our Destiny!

    The project, entitled “Let's Fight Obesity. It's not our Destiny”, (FOB) is carried out by partners from ten European countries and will present the attitudes, motivations and behaviours of European teenagers, in an attempt to help them to establish a healthy policy at an early age that will lead to lifelong healthy habits. Students and teachers will develop their skills in working as a team. This helps them planning and doing classroom activities by using modern information and communication technologies (ICT). It enhances both a broader understanding of European cultural diversity and a fast, efficient and rewarding communication between people. The objective of this work is to raise the awareness of students about the importance of eating healthily and the dangers that obesity brings to our life. Students will be more aware of the causes and results of obesity in relation to different lifestyles, eating habits and tech-addiction. It will also help them to understand that obesity problems can be the same in all countries, regardless the different cultural norms and diversities prevalent in each country. The impact of Nanotechnology & Nanoscience on the prevention and treatment of obesity will be of particular interest in our project. This could be a new approach to tackle the problem of obesity. Finally, we will focus on prevention and treatment of obesity to find out best practices against the current epidemic. Fighting obesity should be initiated during adolescence as weight loss in adulthood is difficult. School is the perfect medium for transmitting knowledge about health education.
