Healthy Cities of the Czech Republic

Summary 2013 (EN)

Dear Colleagues,

please let me familiarise you through this summary Newsletter
with selected activities and events of Czech Healthy Cities that took place in 2013.

At the same time we would like to thank all our network members as well as all national
and foreign partners for their good cooperation not only in the last year,
but also throughout the whole period of the twenty years of our Association's activity
in the Czech Republic. We hope to continue in our shared dedication to activities
related with sustainable development and support of healthy lifestyle
in the CZ municipalities.

(NOTE: Some of the website links are available only in Czech, in that case
you can use the Google Translate toolbar, which can be found on the left side
of the HCCZ web page.)

I believe that this new HCCZ Newsletter will be for you an interesting and useful
source of information and inspiration from our network.

Healthy City Public Forum – engaging people for discussing their problems and solutions

Healthy City Public Forum is a meeting attended not only by the local inhabitants and local administration representatives, but also by the representatives of local non-profit organisations, schools and other external experts. The forum offers inspiration to interested parties from municipalities. The participants of Healthy City Public Forum define the main problems in a given municipality and vote to determine top ten problems that are consequently verified in a poll, involving a wider circle of citizens. The participants of the event also find out more about how their problems raised at the meeting held on the previous year had been dealt with. In 2013, more than 35 such forums took place in the Czech municipalities, with participation of more than 2800 people.

Do Czech cities plan and manage their development well? Healthy Cities Network helps to do so!

In the last months ended a two-year project of Healthy Cities of the Czech Republic Association titled "Quality and Efficient Strategic Management in Municipalities". Owing to support from the European Social Fund and Operational Programme of Human Resources and Employment, hundreds of representatives of municipal, town or regional offices across Czech Republic could be trained. Both small municipalities and large cities received targeted consultations and advisory services focused on how to plan and manage their development well. Several IT tools available online have been prepared to facilitate the cities' work with their strategies or budgets.


Pour féliciter 2014

The team of Czech Healthy Cities Network wish you a successful year 2014. We would also like to thank you for your support and cooperation.
