Healthy Cities can engage citizens – 55 successful events this year

In the first half of 2019, the Association held twenty-two Healthy Cities Public Fora. After the holidays, new fora and big round tables are in the pipeline with twelve more events announced to take place by the end of the year.

Additionally, the members of Czech Healthy Cities can use at no cost the service of “emotional maps” which are created during these meeting, or they can verify the outcomes of the forum by a survey involving a wider range of respondents.

Other highly popular meetings are School and Youth Fora where pupils and students discuss the development of their municipalities. This year has already seen a record number of 33 of these events aimed at awakening interest of mainly children and students in public affairs and the situation of the place where they live.

At the same time, cities are starting to hold big round tables where a particular issue is examined from the broad context of sustainable development.

This event was supported from the funds of the European Social Fund provided from the Operational Employment Programme to implement the project.



Czech Healthy Cities got over 20,000 Facebook fans

In August 2019, the Facebook of Czech Healthy Cities hit a record number of 20,000 likes. In the Czech Republic, this is a pretty good result in the non-commercial website segment. Czech Healthy Cities has been using Facebook for promotion since 2011.

The Association is also active on visually-oriented Instagram which is ideal for publishing pictorial information and photos and is used for wider promotions of small initiatives from Healthy cities, towns and regions.

Twitter is aimed at invitations and hot news where it is possible to find not only up-to-date information about Healthy Cities national events and activities but also shared news from the Association´s members.

"We are pleased with this interest shown by our followers, which is important in terms of the target group and awareness of the international Healthy City programme. We believe that our subscribers will appreciate our best practices derived from the progress of Healthy cities, towns and regions towards the quality of life, health and sustainable development," said the Czech Healthy Cities director Petr Svec.
