The Foundation for Active Healthy Kids is working with various partners, including The Ontario Physical and Health Education Association (OPHEA), to host Youth Summit 2001 with generous support from Health Canada, under the Canadian Diabetes Strategy.
Youth Summit 2001, "Physical Activity - Love it? Want it? Need it!", will provide
* a forum for youth from across the province to come together and openly discuss their thoughts, opinions and solutions on issues regarding physical activity participation, and healthy lifestyles.
This week's feature comes to us from New Zealand. Steve Shaffelburg and Hali Oliver of Toi Te Ora Public Health share with us their experiences using Photovoice in schools.
Be sure to visit the websites listed in our resources message, 206.2. Both http://www.photovoice.org and http://www.photovoice.com have remarkable galleries with photographs from Photovoice projects around the world.
And, if you haven't already, please check out OHPE Bulletins 204.1 and 204.2 in our searchable archive at http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin. The feature article was written by Charlotte Lombardo, a health promotion student at the University of Toronto and the co-leader of TeenNet's Youth Action initiative which uses the Photovoice methodology.
