re-think their priorities and realise that what makes us happy has less to do with our money or
possessions, and more with our attitudes and relationships with other people.
The aim of focusing in these aspects of our lives is to improve the relations of each human being with
his/her fellow citizens. This exchange, aims to promote mental health among youth, develop mindsets against depression and promote e-health approaches – goals that correspond to some of the
key EU policy goals. The specific activity aims to work towards developing a culture of positivity
and cultivating those skills and attitudes necessary for leading a happier and more fulfilled life,

health and wellbeing of young people, as part of one of its two main objectives – the
encouragement of young people to actively participate in society.
