Kuhnapato project among the best practice in Europe
At the Tartu Call for a Healthy Lifestyle seminar organised by the European Commission, the Kuhnapato project was rated among the best practice in Europe in the area of health and sustainability.
The Kuhnapato project received a great accolade in the form of certification as one of the best projects and best practices at EU level in the area of health and sustainable lifestyle. The health ministry recognised the benefits of the project three years ago, since which it has gone on to achieve even better results, particularly in helping many young people change their thinking and their lifestyle, and thus to choose a healthy, sustainable path for the future.
The Vesela Kuhinja society has been running the Kuhnapato project for eight years now, with the aim of making it easier for young people to enjoy a healthy diet. One of the main objectives of the project is to show young people and the wider public that healthy food can be enjoyed by everyone, irrespective of their economic status, while another important part of the project is raising awareness of local food production. There is a great emphasis on working with schools, and peer pressure for a healthy diet. The project is achieving excellent results in strengthening students’ skills and empathy, thus leading to greater success at school and in other walks of life.
