About the project

Sustainability, Heritage, Health (SHH) is an Erasmus Plus project, in key action category “Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices”, in the field of Strategic Partnerships for adult education.

The main goal of this project is to connect European cultural heritage with human and environmental health. The objective of the project is to define walking routes and a recipe book to highlight European culture, promote exercise, mindfulness, nutrition, and work towards sustainability goals. The walking routes, the recipe book and all the activities associated with the project will be put into a mobile application and onto an online platform that people will be able to access from anywhere.

The NHS recommends regular exercise, including at least 150 minutes of moderateintensity activity a week – this project wants to link exercise with cultural exercise and also a healthy diet. Walking is low in terms of the environmental impact of the people who take part in it, as people are spending their time walking rather than other forms of transport, therefore encouraging wider sustainability goals. Walking is also an opportunity to practice mindfulness to foster mental wellbeing. The NHS states that mindfulness can lead to greater mental wellbeing. Walking is considered a form of mindfulness practice. Through the creation of a recipe book and participation in cooking workshops, participants will explore nutrition and sustainable food systems.

Current progress

Our project is entering its final implementation months! We are currently finalizing all of our results and planning our last steps as the SHH team.

Transnational Project Meeting in Greece

In June the partners met in person in Athens, Greece. The first day of the meeting the team worked on the project results, reporting and communication strategy, while on the second day we visited the environmental NGO “Organization Earth” and had a workshop on local
