Petition “Health education - in the school curriculum!”

Forum Klyuch/KeySofia,  December 19 2014

Dear colleagues, partners and  friends,
The link 
http://www.peticiq.com/102956  leads to a petition for introducing health education as an integral part of the school curriculum. Health, in the context of the complete physical, mental and social welfare of a person, and not just lack of a disease or a disability, is a responsibility not only of the family, but of society, part of which is the school. The school is responsible not only for safeguarding the health of children and young people, but also for establishing a system of knowledge, abilities and a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle within each student. The petition forеsees adding a new socio-cultural discipline in order to address the personal, social, ecological and civil development and healthy lifestyle of the students and comprises health, civil and social education. Education itself is interconnected with health and both together have a direct influence on an individual's social status. By getting information and skills in the area of health education young people are given an equal chance to achieve more in their future development.
This is not a BFPA petition, but as an organization that is FOR health education for young people we support it!  Please read the full text and support the petition with your name and signature, as we did. Follow the link and type your name and e-mail address - there is an option for your name to remain private. Then confirm from your e-mail by following the link that will be sent to you. Once again:
