Health Fellows Launch Two Salzburg Statements and Fellow Recommendations

Publications stem from program on "Bridging Worlds: How Can We Use Business and Economic Development Strategies to Support Better Health?" Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay

Earlier this year, policymakers, business representatives, academics, and representatives from civil society took part in Bridging Worlds: How Can We Use Business and Economic Development Strategies to Support Better Health?

From April 29 to May 2, participants tackled complex challenges and attempted to bridge the worlds of business, health, and economic development. At the end of the program, participants were enthusiastic to keep connected and keep the momentum going.

Today, we are delighted to present three new publications resulting from this program. In addition to two Salzburg Statements, we have a set of Fellow Recommendations:

Each publication was worked on by different groups of Fellows who attended the program. Both Statements are also available to view on Issuu.

The Salzburg Statement on Creating Community-Owned Narratives for Healthy Local Economies calls on health and economic policymakers to recognize they have a responsibility to stimulate sharing of information between communities and policymakers by the promotion of narratives as an inclusive method, complementary to other sources of evidence.

Successful cities are those that create an environment which is inclusive of all people and all abilities. The Salzburg Statement on How Cities Can Promote Genuinely Inclusive Economies call for cities to lead change at the local and national level.

In addition, a Fellows Recommendation worked on by Jennifer Wallace, Cat Tully, Vibeke Koushede, Hiroko Nishimoto, and Jo Nurse (among others), has been published, outlining details for a project which will generate conversations about the future and provide an insight into global well-being.

If you would like to endorse either of the Statements or the Fellows Recommendation, please email press@salzburgglobal.org. If supporting a Statement, please provide your full name and affiliation.
