Mobilizing the International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges


Published on

This plenary session took place during the Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses Summit 2016. The recently released Okanagan Charter was developed by stakeholders from 45 countries to confront increasingly complex issues about health, well-being, sustainability of people and the planet. It outlines the unique role of higher education, an action framework and key principles for action. The purpose of the Charter is to guide and inspire action; generate dialogue and research; accelerate action on, off and between campuses; and mobilize international, cross-sector action for the integration of health in all policies and practices.
