EUinAID – YOUTH INVOLVED IN FIRST AID
WHY WE HAVE DECIDED TO SUBMIT THE PROJECT?
There are different approaches on First Aid training in Europe with a significant gap between
- North Europe – between 95-70% of people trained in First Aid in Norway, Germany, Austria
- South Europe – a very low percentage
- In the rest of the world, many countries have only the 5-10% of people trained in First Aid.
Europe is facing several challenges:
- Increasing of aged population
- Increasing of Road accident
- Increasing of Hearth diseases
- Increasing of Chemical and environmental hazards
- Increasing of Alcoholism among young people
Fostering active young participation in society, in accordance with youth capacity-building intention of promoting transnational non – formal mobility and methods.
EUinAID aims at improving skills of youth (18-25 years old), especially NEETs and Youth workers in the field of Health Assistance Through 1 INNOVATIVE TRANSNATIONAL APPROACH TO FIRST AID PRACTICE based on youth engagement, development and straightening of hard/soft skills of youth and knowledge transfer on the matter of first aid practice at EU level.
The project directly involves 7 countries in mapping, analysis, studying, training/learning activities, also in mobility, and in the sharing of best practices in the field.
First Aid training is crucial for creating a more efficient response to emergencies.
EUinAID wants to increase the knowledge transfer between countries for a common language across Europe, to have a consensus on minimum agreed principles based on critical review of the available evidence and information.
