International Health Promotion Summer School
The European Training Consortium in Public Health and Health Promotion (ETC-PHHP) organizes an annual summer school focused on developing practical and theoretical tools to enhance health promotion strategies in Europe.  
This course is the 27th ETC Summer School and focuses on an intergenerational perspective on health promotion.
Lifecourse health development: empowering people and settings.
The overall aim of the Perugia residential Summer School is to provide an international and multidisciplinary forum for the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and skills, with opportunities to explore:
  • People-environment interaction in relation to the promotion of health and wellbeing (health promotion).
  • Resources and mechanisms that enable people to participate fully in society.
  • Synergy between Salutogenesis and the life course perspective.

The course will be 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.

Delivered over eight learning weeks: the first six weeks, commencing May 5th 2018, is delivered through the Distance Learning component; followed by a two-week intensive course delivered in July (16-17) 2018.
