LEGOCIE Project – “Let’s go cooking in Europe!”
GRUNDTVIG Partnership project funded by EU Life Long Learning Programme
Project number – GRP/12/166C
Project period – 2012-2014
LEGOCIE (Let’s GO Cooking in Europe!) is a GRUNDTVIG Partnership project which will encourage and facilitate adults to share knowledge and good practice about the ways that cooking skills and healthy eating are encouraged and supported in a number of European countries. In the project there are involved 10 member countries and candidate countries of the EU: Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey and UK (the project coordinator).
In the first year of the project, for each country involved, partners will:
- Investigate the cooking skills and eating habits in their countries;
- Look at the impact that cooking skills can have on healthy eating and the fight against obesity;
- Investigate the strategies that are in place at local and national level to promote and support improved cooking skills and a healthy diet.
The second year of the project will focus on developing cooking skills in each participating country.
On the basis of what they found in the first year, and what they learnt from sharing with other partners, each partner will:
- Devise an event to promote and encourage cooking skills and healthy eating with community groups, volunteers, parents or elders in their local area or region. The success of this will be evaluated by each individual partner, and the learning will be shared with the other partners at the final project meeting.
- Develop some resources to promote and support cooking healthy food so that the work of the project group can be disseminated locally, regionally and nationally. This will include the collation of healthy recipes and cooking skills information from each of the partner countries.
During the project there were 6 partnership meetings:
- 1st meeting in Newcastle, UK – 22nd-26th October 2012;
- 2nd meeting in Troodos, Cyprus – 18th-22nd March 2013;
- 3rd meeting in Casteletto sopra Ticino, Italy – 29th May-2nd June 2013;
- 4th meeting in Coimbra, Portugal – 2nd-6th October 2013;
- 5th meeting in Martin, Slovakia – 26th February-2nd March 2014;
