Isis in the mountains in Switzerland

Isis has been part of a 3 year project called ‘Be Healthy’ a project that is run by the University of Bedfordshire (the lead academic university in terms of CSE) and AYPH (association for young people’s health).  Along with 2 other CSE projects, Safe and Sound Derby & Barnardos in London, Isis has been involved in training up young people to be health advocates.  Be Healthy was invited to deliver a workshop at the 2nd Annual CATS (Children as actors for transforming society) conference in Caux, Switzerland.  Our young people devised a workshop to present to delegates informing them of all the hard work they have done as health advocates, and showed their animated resource film they produced. All resources can be obtained for FREE by going to the AYPH website
