On August 11-12, 2022, the second transnational project partners meeting of the Strategic partnership Erasmus+ project “Back to normal: Together for health and wellbeing” took place in Rome. The partners discussed and shared the common goal to improve health and wellbeing of the most vulnerable social groups suffering from the long-term consequences of Covid-19, including young adults and senior citizens.
All members of our organisations are also suffering from the negative consequences of pandemic. We needto respond to this ongoing crisis as soon as possible, in order to prevent more negative consequences in the future. It is well-known from the previous social crises that dealing with immediate consequences, saving lives and restoring infrastructure is not enough. Healing process has to include sharing experiences of loss and grief and building resilienceand positive thinking. This process starts with acknowledgement of negative experiences. Trying to forget the past withoutanalysing it is a recipe for post-traumatic stress disorder and more negative health and social consequences in the future.
The project aims to reduce negative consequences of the pandemic for health and wellbeing. We plan to achieve this goalby developing an educational program and a non-formal learning methodology focused on improving physical health andpsychological well-being of people suffering from long-term negative consequences of the Corona crisis.
