To promote a collaborative effort towards ensuring a healthy population in Europe, we would like to engage our members during this week; Should your school have plans for training/workshops/ webinars or other activities related to the themes, please do inform us, so we can support and synergise these events to share as a collective effort of the schools of public health community via our channels.

We would also like to engage your students and alumni, who are interested in planning any EUPHW related activities or simply sharing stories and videos to promote public health awareness in general.

To also engage your students in this initiative: There are 3 events are particularly targeted at the younger audience and we would like you to share with your students:

  1. On Tuesday 14 May, dedicated to "healthy environments", use the TravAble app to register accessible places and services where you live
  2. On Friday 17 May at 10 am GMT, dedicated to "youth mental health", join a webinar on "Youth voices for mental health across Europe"
