Members of Healthy Cities of the Czech Republic took part in the "European Sustainable Development Week 2017"

As in previous years, the European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) took place from 30 May to 5 June. It is a European-wide project aimed at disseminating the idea of sustainable development and encouraging initiatives in support of it. The main organizers of activities of this campaign are Healthy Cities, Towns and Regions of the Czech Republic.
All projects and activities which are thematically related to sustainable development and are not purely commercial could be part of the ESDW. The activities were divided according to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) announced by the UN in autumn 2015.


Healthy Cities held the "Days without Accidents 2017" campaign

Involving annually a number of Healthy cities, towns and regions, and held mainly in the first half of June, the campaign called “Days without Accidents” is aimed at accident prevention. The awareness activities, which are organised as part of this campaign, were focused primarily on road traffic accidents and accidents in schools and sports grounds. Since the most vulnerable group to be involved in road traffic accidents are children and the elderly, a series of lectures were held in nurseries and primary schools, and special events were also dedicated to the safety of the elderly. Furthermore, first aid training to provide assistance in case of injuries and accidents was an essential part of the campaign.
