Healthy Cities, Towns and Regions hold regular meetings for their citizens to discuss the most burning issues concerning the place they live. In 2017, the Healthy City Forum was held in 60 towns and cities with a total attendance of 4488 citizens. Another popular event are "youth and school fora" where pupils and students discuss the development of their municipality. As in the case of the “adult fora”, the outcomes of these public meetings are submitted to a municipal or city council which will address them further. The purpose of these events is to enhance interest in public matters across all generations.(9.1.2018)

Healthy Cities provide its members with methodological support in implementing activities related to the Healthy Region Program or Local Agenda 21. The Healthy Cities staff are ready to offer advice personally or virtually at any time. A major advantage of membership is the possibility to exchange experience and good (but also bad) practices with other members of the network dealing with similar issues. The coordinator of the Vysocina Healthy Region Program and LA21 makes use of the possibility of accredited training and acquiring new specialized information at Healthy Cities Schools. These training events are also an opportunity for face-to-face meetings between coordinators and politicians from Healthy Cities and Regions, and other prominent figures from all over the Czech Republic.(16.10.2017)
