2015 International Conference on Health Promoting Universities and Colleges: 10 Years After the Edmonton Charter

Date: June 22-26, 2015
Location: The University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus, Kelowna, BC

Conference Description:
The 2015 International Conference on Health Promoting Universities and Colleges will create a dynamic meeting place for researchers, practitioners, administrators, students and policy-makers from around the world to explore pressing issues and identify promising paths for healthy and sustainable campus development.

The conference is intended to mobilize the power and highlight the responsibilities of institutions of higher education to provide exceptional learning opportunities for students, to develop vibrant campus communities where everyone thrives, and to advance knowledge and practices relevant locally and globally.

The interactive conference design will support knowledge exchange among a diversity of people interested in the intersections of: human and environmental health and wellbeing, ecosystem sustainability, economic development, and learning and productivity on campuses and beyond. The conference will include plenaries, panels, concurrent sessions, talking circles, networking, and consensus building.

A renewal process for the 2005 Edmonton Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Institutions of Higher Education will enable an update on regional and global network activity, relationship building, and the design of a new Charter through dialogue.

The 2nd Call for Abstracts are now available. Deadline for submission is December 15, 2014.

Registrations will open on December 1, 2014.
