Abstract [en]

Social factors such as social cohesion, the role of the voluntary services and social engagement cannot be influenced by traditional preventive and health promotion initiatives. There is a need for innovative strategies in health promotion. Taking account of the variety of approaches observable in European countries, the idea has arisen of starting a multinational project to develop new solutions to the problem of implementing healthy lifestyles in the local communities of different countries. The project involves 10 partners from six countries: Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Austria, Latvia and Romania. The following results present an analysis of some comparative data of the Swedish and Romanian communities. Attitudes about health and behavior in terms of maintaining health are very different in Romania and Sweden. These differences very likely reflect the level of information on health, nutrition, physical activity and sources of information. The study highlighted some differences in the eating habits of the two groups of subjects.
