"Healthy Communities are grounded in knowledge"
A healthy city fosters cooperative partnerships within the community and through the political process to create 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 has become an important alternative, offering lasting solutions to strengthen our future. Sustainable development
seeks to take 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
the unique position, with power to protect and promote their citizensí well-being. The STEEPE MODEL is an approach that integrates two sets of long-standing
principle: one that encompasses people's relationship with the environment, and second regarding the current generation's responsibilities to future generations.
