Welcome to the Healthy Children website

This website can be used as a toolbox for local communities and civil society organisations that want to find inspiration on how to work more strategically with volunteers as a resource to reach children and young people in deprived areas with health promoting activities.

This site is currently being reorganized as a part of the project finalization.

 Target groups

If you are a municipality, you can use this website to find inspiration on how to build up strategic relationships with civil society organizations in relation to health promotion activities that are implemented close to the citizens. You will also find inspiration on how to provide training and competence development for volunteers from these organizations in order to create a local network of health ambassadors who can “talk health” with citizens in their everyday surroundings.

If you are a civil society organization, you can use this website to find inspiration on how to develop and implement health promoting activities, which can benefit the target groups and members of your organizations and transform your civil society organization into a “healthy setting”.

 The Concept

The Healthy Children Concept has been developed within a European development project, supported by the European Public Health Programme.

The overall philosophy of the concept is to create strategic partnerships between local health promoting authorities, civil society organisations and volunteers, and to train the volunteers to act as “health ambassadors” working with children and young people in deprived areas.

Children and young people in deprived areas are often believed to be difficult to reach with traditional health promoting activities. The Healthy Children Concept takes that specific challenge into consideration and seeks new ways to communicate with children, young people and their families in order to engage and empower them to take active decisions about their good health.
