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

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.

Participants have 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 will provide you with a unique experience that will inspire you in promoting health and wellbeing in your own contexts. An additional benefit is the long-lasting international networks with participants and academic tutors developed over the 2-week course.


The field of health promotion is diverse and as such participants from a wide range of health promotion, public health, local government, NGO and healthcare backgrounds will be taking part, including people from sectors such as urban planning, academia, social work, research, management, practice and policy. The course working language is English. In case there are some students interested, it will be possible to translate the course in spanish simultaneously.

Note: The number of participants is limited!.

In the weekend of January 18/19/20th, the ETC Network will come together in Girona to arrange the programme for the Summer Course 2019. Keep an eye on this website to stay updated!
