Seminar Pacific School Health Promotion Futures – Register now

A one-day hybrid seminar for all school health stakeholders in the Pacific!

21 February 2023 from 9.30am to 3.30pm AEDT

Please join us as we consider the future of school health promotion in the Pacific region. This seminar is the first in a series of dialogues that aim to bring together key stakeholders from across the region and provide a platform for discussion and innovation in school health promotion. The major aim of this first seminar is for us to consider how schools can best contribute to the health and wellbeing of students, teachers, and the broader school community moving forward. The seminar will adopt a futures based approach to consider what school health promotion might look like in 2050.

The seminar’s objectives are to:

  1. Share current approaches to school health promotion across the Pacific region;
  2. Discuss what we want school health promotion to look, and feel, like in 2050;
  3. Identify current key enablers and barriers to school health promotion within our local and regional contexts;
  4. Identify key priorities and actions for strengthening school health promotion in the short and medium term; and
  5. Network among key stakeholders involved in school health promotion.

This seminar will be of interest to teachers, teacher educators, health promotion professionals, school nurses and other school health workers, health organisations, policy and curriculum workers, professional associations and academics.

The seminar is organised as a hybrid event online on Zoom and face to face at Monash University, Clayton Campus, Melbourne, Australia. It will be held in English and French with online simultaneous translation.

You can register by completing this form. Registration is open until Wednesday 15 February 2023. Participating in the workshop is free of charge.

The seminar is co-organised by Monash University و University of Clermont Auvergne, the UNESCO chair and WHO Collaborating Centre Global Health & Education, the Pacific Community and supported by the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), Réseau francophone international pour la promotion de la santé (REFIPS), VicHealth, Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and the University of Auckland.
