We are what we eat! is an international youth exchange program with the participation of
six promoters: Mikes Kelemen Fans Informal Youth Group from Turkey, GreenRope from
Italy, Youthfully Yours Gr from Greece, EDU 4 U from Slovakia, Young Beats of Lithuania from
Lithuania and the hosting organization, the Youth Forum of Odorhei from Romania.

Food is one of human beings’ favorite obsessions. Most people spend a great deal of time
physically and mentally preoccupied with food: we organize and prepare meals, we
daydream about what’s for lunch or dinner… And we eat, sometimes a lot… Beyond simply
an enjoyable, necessary human pastime, though, eating has important implications for how
we think of ourselves, and how we relate to the larger cultures of which we are part in
Europe. Which foods people prefer is connected obviously not only with what grows well in
a particular place, but also with culture, tradition or rituals, even scarcity and rarity of some
The important question is how we can discover ourselves by the food we are eating? How
can we discover at the same time the benefits of the healthy lifestyle and the connection
between the modern and the traditional food from some European countries? What specific
cultural assumptions are reflected in the ways that people eat in Europe? How do eating
practices reflect our cultural differences? How do our own eating patterns reflect the various
cultures of which we are part of?
These are the main questions which led us, the Youth Forum of Odorhei to introduce youth
into the culture of food and traditional meals from Europe, both for intercultural dialogue
and multicultural learning purposes, communication and motivation for a healthy lifestyle
among the local communities from where we came from.
Also we – as initiators – identified one other basic aim of the project, which is to create
project ideas on healthy lifestyle which could be implemented by the promoters and
participants in their areas of activity in order to enlarge their chances to develop both on
personal and professional level.
We will have one week to visit among other interesting places from Harghita County
(Romania) the milk factory, farms with herbals and veggies, traditional bakeries and a lot
of visits of other unique locations. During the program we will have language lessons,
intercultural evenings, training sessions and workshops, folk dances and so on.
