The Erasmus project BLISS wants to respond, with an integrated intervention from both the educational and social point of view, to the "need for health" and the related need to have the digital tools necessary to find, analyze, and understand the news about health. Active Citizenship Network, thanks to its broad knowledge on health issues, was involved by EGINA to cover a leading role in the EU project, which will begin in February 2022 and will last 24 months.
BLISS aims at responding to the horizontal priority related to the promotion of innovative pedagogical strategies in the context of digital transformation, offering a training course aimed primarily at teachers but which will then benefit students of secondary schools in six European countries. It will try to do this by providing paths and training content on digital health learning that are accessible, understandable and engaging.
The project’s main goal is to strengthen students' ability to move with awareness and confidence in the world of online health information by, on the one hand, encouraging the acquisition and strengthening of key competencies, and, on the other hand, aiming at the improvement and continuous training of teaching staff in the area of health promotion and responsible and informed access to health services. This will enable the citizens of tomorrow to better manage their health, improve prevention, enable more accurate diagnosis and treatment, and facilitate communication with health professionals, ultimately contributing to a greater development of health literacy in Europe through targeted training, documentation, and testing in schools.
