ENTP supports the WHO campaign "1000 cities, 1000 lives".
The latest updates on the preparations for World Health Day 2010 and the "1000 Cities, 1000 Lives" campaign include
- the toolkit for event organisers, now available online
- the inspirational 5 minutes videos, now available online
The philosophy of the event is two-fold: on one hand, the day aims to promote health related policies and make politicians and stakeholders think about the impact of urban policies on the wellness of citizens (even when not immediately evident); on the other hand, it is an occasion to enhance and publicize the efforts and the initiatives of the local authorities from the point of view of the health and well-being of the populations (including elderly or other people not usually taking advantage of sport and leisure services).
Municipalities are expected to close a street or a public space for one day and to organise there activities to make people take benefits of the public space. It can be a run, games, some stands promoting municipal services and other services locally available.
More infos are available here.
Once the Municipality has decided to take part in the event, ENTP would act as go-between with the WHO European office providing guidelines, logos and supporting information for the campaign.
