Health Promotion Conference 2019

Creating health promoting environments

This year’s Health Promotion Conference takes place at the Creative Hub Garden in Tallinn on the 4th of July and the focus is set on ways to design health promoting living environments.

People’s health, development, behaviour and choices are heavily influenced by the surrounding living environment – physical, mental, social and digital as well as economic and political. While some aspects, such as the safety of the physical environment and the prevention of injuries have been discussed quite a lot, the environment’s impact on human behaviour or brain or the effect of space and design on health have received less attention.

The conference will present best practices and results of studies and develop innovative solutions through practical exercises. The HPP project team will also conduct two parallel sessions on the design of physical environment and on the different aspects of health in everyday choices.

The conference welcomes the participation of members of the safety and health boards and committees from counties and local governments, heads of local governments, social and welfare workers, health care professionals, employees and students from educational institutions, including universities and institutions of higher education, representatives of employers, ministries, government agencies, NGOs, media, spacial design professionals as well as all other interested parties.

Further information about the conference and registration will be available mid-April on this site as well as on and

The conference is without charge; however, prior registration is required.
