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.

We have created and have been providing a number of practical tools and proven methodological procedures intended for municipalities and regions. We seek and offer: inspiration, ways to evaluate progress towards sustainable development and quality of life, methods how to set and manage required processes at local authorities, and how to properly implement strategic planning and management. In cooperation with our expert partners we help to develop innovative themes - in 2017 it was e.g. planning for health, adaptation to climate change, cultural planning and evaluation, quality of life indicators and benchmarking, and many other topics.(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.

The traditional autumn meeting of not only Healthy Cities but also for other participants, held between 1-3 November 2017, was attended by more than 130 representatives of cities, towns and regions from all over the Czech Republic, as well as NGOs and other partner organizations. The introductory seminar of the Autumn Healthy Cities School provided inspiration for topics such as financial resources, quality of local authorities, sustainable development, health promotion, clean mobility, data processing, involvement of entrepreneurs, emotional maps, school fora or the Antifetfest film festival.

The aspirants striving for the highest “A” and “B” categories of LA21 presented their progress towards sustainable development at seminars held in cities.
