NO GDO PROJECT
The seventh “NO GDO” Project meeting was held between April 12 – 17 in the city of Duisburg, Germany. Cappadocia Vocational College serves as a coordinator for the Project under the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Program.
Among the attendees were Duisburger Werkkiste (Germany), the CETAL Institute of Buckinghamshire New University (UK), Nevşehir Directorate for Provincial Education, Nevşehir Directorate for Public Health, Cappadocia Development Association (Kapadokya Gelişim Derneği) and Kırşehir Scouting and Sports Association (Kırşehir İzcilik ve Spor Derneği).
Among the goals of the Project are to raise primary and secondary education students’, CVC Students’ and their families’ and teachers’ awareness on issues such as obesity and diabetes; to help them acquire healthy eating habits; and make physical exercise a part of their daily life. The project also aims to identify, monitor and raise the awareness of under-risk-individuals.
Within this scope, the government institutions such as the Nevşehir Directorate for Provincial Education and Nevşehir Directorate for Public Health did scans and related experiences were shared with our international partners.
The project focuses on two basic outcomes, which consist of a curriculum for diet cooking and a curriculum for nutrition with the aim of helping the public gain balanced eating habits. Project outcomes will be finalized in the final workshop in July 13, 2016. We plan to publish these on the website www.nogdo.org
Curriculum for nutrition will be available to anyone on a digital platform, which will be designed to contain basic information, related to raising mothers’ and children’s awareness in particular, on balanced and healthy eating habits.
With the curriculum for diet cooking, we aim to raise chefs’ and cooks’ awareness on nutrition and diet menus for diabetics.
It is anticipated that a platform for cooperation between governmental and non-governmental institutions will be formed in order to prepare a joint action plan to take sustained measures in regards to raise public’s awareness on balanced and healthy nutrition.
