Lifelong learning for health webinar 1/3 – Conceptualizing, raising awareness and developing policies – UNESCO Chair speaking
June 1 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm CEST
The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and the UNESCO Chair Global Health and Education (GHE) will co-host this webinar as part of a series aimed at developing a roadmap for the enactment of the Yeonsu Declaration for Learning Cities, adopted at the fifth International Conference on Learning Cities (ICLC 5) in October 2021.
The first in a three-part webinar series entitled ‘Lifelong learning for health: Enacting the Yeonsu Declaration for Learning Cities’, it will look at ways of conceptualizing lifelong learning for health (LLLH) so that it can be adapted to different city contexts. Raising awareness of the importance of cities for spearheading LLLH initiatives, including initiatives promoting health literacy and citizenship for health, will also be addressed. In addition, the webinar will explore the plausibility of establishing city-level intersectoral taskforces who oversee LLLH policy.
More specifically, the following thematic focuses will be on the agenda:
- Thematic Focus 1: Conceptualizing LLLH in order to build policies that recognize local contexts and contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals;
- Thematic Focus 2: Raising awareness of and garnering private and public support for cities to facilitate LLLH promotion, including for health literacy and citizenship for health;
- Thematic Focus 3: Establishing intersectoral taskforces to initiate and oversee LLLH policy development.
The webinar will be held in English, French and Spanish.
