It´s just lecturing about a health life style or how to avoid AIDS - and
distributing leaflets of that sort. I like the awareness raising you´ve
proposed before (were it you, I believe?) . But I don´t think you could call
the Paralympics osvetova cinnost.
As to ozdravny pobyt, Tomas B. is right. It´s indeed bringing the kids from
cities to spas, seaside and/or mountains. No luring of new customers
included. I believe we´ve discussed it at a Buvol meeting recently. Healh
Poznavaci pobyt is indeed the one with visiting castles and ruins.
