"Healthy Communities are grounded in knowledge"
A healthy city fosters cooperative partnerships within the community and through the political process to create a political commitment, institutional change,
capacity-building, consensus building, partnership-based planning and innovative projects. Healthy Cities seek to apply principles such as equity, empowerment,
collaboration, and community participation through local action.
Community health and sustainable development have become important alternative, offering lasting solutions to strengthen our future. Sustainable development
seeks approaches that benefit our local communities, environment, and quality of life.
The Goal is to put health high on the social, economic, and political agenda of all leaders; health is the business of all sectors and local authorities; leaders are
in a unique position, with the power to protect and promote their citizens’ well-being. The STEEPE MODEL is an approach that integrates two sets of long-
standing principles: one that encompasses people's relationship with the environment and the second regarding the current generation's responsibilities to future
