Safe and Active Schoolday
The main goal of Safe and Active Schoolday is the promotion of sustainable healthy life and well-being of children and youth in the school context. This is striven by fostering and encouraging active life style, participation and involvement as well as by strengthening the community involvement and participation. In order to reach these goals, we are going to:
1) CREATE OPERATIONAL MODELS AND CONCRETE TOOLS TO:
Increase active participation and involvement: e.g. break time activities, pupils as planners, activators and organisers of activities and environments, activating environments and tools, learning outdoors, school afternoon activities etc. Strengthen the feeling of togetherness: how and what can we do together, school yard projects with paintings, simple tools etc., older pupils taking responsibility of activating younger ones, co-operation between school and families etc. Create innovative co-oparation in schools, between schools, on a city level (cross administrational co-operation) and cross the border: well-being teams in schools, networks between schools, working groups on a city level, cross border working groups & promoting group. Create the foundation for a new kind of partnership model for promotion of well-being of children and youth: actors, roles, responsibilities
2) GATHER, PROCESS AND ANALYSE DATA ABOUT:
• the life style of children and youth,
• conceptions of well-being, participation and involvement in schools etc.
• different actors, their roles and resbonsibilities in creating a new model of WellBeing Partnership of children and youth
There are 44 Turkku and 45 Tallinn schools involved in the project with the total length of 3,5 years.
