Health Points: A game based approach for Health Promotion

May 22, 2018 | News

How important is health promotion among disadvantaged young adults?

Is it possible to create a game that supports health education? What topics should cover?

On 30th and 31st January 2018, the first meeting of Health Points- A game based approach for Health Promotion took place in London (United Kingdom).

The project aims to promote an educational approach based on gaming and provide innovative access to information on health prevention and education for disadvantaged young adults.

In addition, it will offer trainers and educators with an original and fun tool (an interactive game) to effectively and amusingly deal with topics related to health care.

In order to achieve this goal, we will put in practice the following activities:

  • developing innovative and interactive learning methods and contents;
  • improving good practice examples on how to embed health related education into existing educational and/or training offers;
  • enhancing the understanding on the health literacy needs on the part of teachers, trainers and educators;
  • acquiring concrete knowledge, skills and competences for implementing the interactive gameand embedding it effectively in educational activities;
  • increasing awareness of the benefits and importance of health prevention for young adults and improving knowledge to make healthier choices in daily life.

Besides, we will elaborate a training programme for trainers, teachers and educators with online modular resources and webinars.

Health Points – A game based approach for Health Promotion is a project co-funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus + program, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education.

The consortium consists of the following European partners:
