Languages of publication
Health promotion requires intervention in social systems and encouraging them to develop a healthy environment. School is one of the important social systems contributing to health promotion. “The health promoting school” (HPS) programme was established in the 1980s while looking for ways of putting the health promotion concept into practice. The milestones in developing this programme were: the pilot project “The Health Promoting School” (1992–1995), establishing the European Network of Health Promoting Schools (1992) (transformed into Schools for Health in Europe in 2008) and four European conferences organized within the framework of these networks (1997, 2002, 2009, 2013). This article presents a discussion of the four resolutions which were the final documents of these conferences. They described the basic principles of HPS and the aims and directions of activities for further programme development. The documents are addressed to the people who create the educational and health policy, teachers and researchers in European countries who should support the development of HPSs – recognized as an investment in health, education and democracy.
