Growing up Healthy in a Healthy Environment
«It was a beautiful village and the children could play in the middle of the street! Cars were not allowed to drive through and the children played ball.»
A primary goal of the SNYC is to create an environment in which children and youth are able to develop a healthy and stable personality. The SNYC aims to promote health among youth in this way through the following:
- Program “Voilà” promotes health and the prevention of addiction in children and youth organisations. The pilot project “Rauschlos glücklich” (Happy without Intoxication) promotes the prevention of excessive drinking among youth. Both programmes offer children and youth the chance to participate in creating a healthy environment for themselves.
- Optimal personality development requires promotion of the individual in all aspects of life. A special focus of the SNYC is on gender-equal health promotion so young women, young men and boys and girls can reach their full potential equally.
