Financed by the European Union Program Horizon 2020, the budget of around 9.5 million euros establishes a program of activities for a period of five years (2018-2023), currently underway.

The CO-CREATE Project works with adolescents to develop, inform and disseminate policies that combat obesity among their peers, through a systematic approach that allows us to understand which factors young people consider to be related to obesity and how they interact each other and at various levels. The project recognizes young people as a crucial group with increasing autonomy, being the next generation of adults, parents and policy makers and, consequently, important agents of change. CO-CREATE aims to involve and empower adolescents and youth organizations, encouraging a participatory process that allows identifying and formulating relevant policies and analyzing them with other stakeholders in the public and private sectors, promoting relevant political actions and the development of tools and strategies for the implementation of these policies.

The project builds on existing initiatives and platforms, building new opportunities to enhance young people’s power of argument and their involvement in policy transformation. CO-CREATE partner organizations include research departments at universities, national public health institutions and various civil society organizations related to youth health and welfare policies.

Why does the @EU_COCREATE project work with young people?

'When youth are actively engaged, they are enabled to continue to work for what they believe in. They will have to live the longest with the policies that are enacted today'

And they have a right to be heard! #CC4EU
