Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
October 16-17, 2016
The Forum presents a unique opportunity to learn from and connect with international health promotion leaders. The event will bring together policymakers, government leaders, NGOs, researchers, educators, health promotion and public health professionals, community health leaders and experts across all sectors working to promote health, equity and sustainability. Preliminary program details are now available online and will be updated further in the coming weeks.
The theme for the two-day event is Health Promotion ~ At the Very Heart of Sustainability. The event will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and highlight the contributions of civil society and health promotion initiatives to sustainable development. The 6th Global Forum will be presented in Canada’s two official languages, with simultaneous translation available in French and English.
The 6th Global Forum on Health Promotion will highlight the ways in which Health Promotion and Civil Society can contribute to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals were adopted by world leaders during the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in 2015 as a means to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. In this period of global transition, health promotion is integral to creating the new sustainability paradigm. The Forum will focus on how health promotion activities can support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals over the next 14 years, revealing how communities and organizations around the world are creating change for local, national and global impact.
The 6th Global Forum on Health Promotion is hosted and co-organized by the Government of Prince Edward Island in partnership with the Alliance for Health Promotion (Geneva, Switzerland), The Quaich Inc. (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) and Groupe entreprises en santé (Montreal, Québec)
