Pre-conference: Genuine Participation and the Transformational Potential of Health Promotion – Coronavirus Politics – UNESCO Chair speaking
10 November 2021 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm CET
Online pre-conference of the 14th European Public Health Conference 2021
Organised by EUPHA Health Promotion section, UNESCO Chair Global Health & Education and International Institute, University of Michigan.
The main goal of this pre-conference is to open new perspectives on genuine participation as a means to highlight the transformational potential of Health Promotion. By shifting participation as a mantra to participation as a practice this pre-conference aims at establishing a stronger focus to inclusion as part of health-for-all-policies. During the preconference we will:
- identify gaps between discourse and practice in participation
- discuss a range of practices and tools to guide the transformational potential of health promotion
- share priority areas for moving ahead with genuine participation
Next to these objectives, we wish to create a space that supports international networking among professionals and researchers interested in advancing participatory community-based public health interventions.
