OACCUs: 6 EU Countries. 14 Partners. One mission. EU Network for Young Cancer Survivors.
The OAC connects Us - OACCUs - EU Network for Young Cancer Survivors

The project will bring together six different countries from different regions of Europe through 14 different organisations and create a cooperation network that will have a great impact at local, national and European level. The OACCUs project within EU4Health will have a direct impact on the project staff and participating organisations in terms of:

  • Learning and sharing new methods to promote positive attitudes and norms related to physical activity in a healthy environment, healthy eating, self-efficacy in behaviour change, psycho education and psychological well-being. New learning pathways will be developed for young cancer survivors and their friends at European level and will actively support the target group.
  • Strengthening of organisational capacities, project management, cooperation in partnership, research and testing of methods, creation of a toolbox and structuring information, adaptation of content in the field of physical education, organisation of multiplier events, training of trainers, ambassadors and coaches within the target group and quality assurance skills.
  • To create and maintain in the long term a European network of organisations dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity, outdoor activities and healthy lifestyles, and to create further new innovative projects for the future.

The OACCUs project will have an impact on participants during and after the project period, through the activities to be carried out. Read more on the OACCUs project website.
