Through this initiative we aim to meet our needs and those of our peers from the participating countries such as:
• Learn to identify stressors in our daily lives.
• Find creative ways to avoid and limit them.
• Recognize the signs of stress in our own body and create techniques to control them, as well as consciously control our body language at important times.
• Build useful habits for responding to stressful situations and public speaking techniques.
• Skillfully organize and manage our time and set high but realistic goals.
• Put on the public agenda the problem of the adverse effects of stress on young people in cooperation with a number of institutions such as schools, youth centers, universities, employment offices and centers for personal development and vocational training.
• Improve the conditions for providing adequate psychological support and a clearer understanding of the needs of young people by those working in those institutions.
All of this will improve our health and quality of life, help us to be more confident, consciously control our lives and achieve our goals. It will make us more resilient and adaptable in crisis situations, such as the Corona virus pandemic. It will allow us to prioritize and manage our time more effectively, which significantly reduces the risk of Burnout syndrome. Last but not least, it will make our social and institutional environment more hospitable and open to our needs.
