Summer course 2019 – Girona

Implementing sustainable development goals for healthy local governance

The 28th residential Summer School is held in Girona, Spain. The theme was ‘Implementing sustainable development goals for healthy local governance’.
The course is held from 14 July – 28 July 2019.


Course content
The course is based on both theoretical and practical elements of health promotion, which is underpinned by an emphasis on adult learning and participant interaction.
This includes field visits to exemplary local programmes and opportunities for sharing knowledge and experiences with international colleagues involved in promoting health in its broadest sense.
Participants had the opportunity to develop insights into the socio-cultural and political contexts of other health systems. This is facilitated through each participant providing a brief “country presentation” at the start of the course. Participants also engage in developing a live project, including research, as part of an international multidisciplinary working group. The 28th Summer School has provided our participants with a unique experience that will inspire them in promoting health and well being in their own contexts. An additional benefit is the long-lasting international networks with participants and academic tutors developed over the 2-week course.
