HEP - Model for Wellbeing and Health Promoting Physical Activity for Young people (20-30 years)

The main aim of HEP-project is to develop new models to promote and support physical activity of young people (20-30 years) with risk of marginalization.

In Oulu area the employment and the age structure is challenging and complicates to reach available study and job positions for young adults. It’s well known that unemployment is a risk factor of marginalization and accumulates unhealthy ways of living. Physical activity is one of the most important factor to prevent these risk factors.

This new, developing model will combine information of medical checks and include guidance for employment, health way of living and physical ecxercise.

The project is ongoing in area of Oulu during the years 2014-2016.
