The Healthy Cities and Regions collaborate in the long run with their young inhabitants, specifically in concrete campaigns or events, but also in the planning of what should be improved in a given municipality. So called Young Forums, attended by pupils and students of basic and high schools, have become a standard complement of similarly focused events for "adults" in the Healthy Cities. Similar events take place in other cities too, the young participate at "adult" public proceedings, having their own discussion table. Where the cities want to concentrate on specific solutions, the cities organise thematically focused round tables, for instance on the subject of Safe Route to School and others.

Volunteering has been developing in the recent years not only in the non-profit or corporate sphere, but also in the municipalities and regions, where it presents a major opportunity for development of a number of activities. In a way similar to public (community) services that currently, unfortunately, undergo significant changes and bring a number of complications both to the very applicants for employment, who are interested in public community services, as well as to municipalities and regions that organize this activity. Despite these difficulties, both public service and volunteering present a great challenge to deal with a number of issues in the municipalities. For this reason, the Healthy Cities together with the partners HESTIA o.s. - national volunteering centre and foreign partners C.A.R.D.O. from Slovakia and association of Healthy Cities of the Baltic Region have prepared the project of "Volunteering and Community Service (performed by unemployed) in Municipalities". In the following two years, the project will gather best practice examples dedicated to the issue of volunteering from the Czech Republic and abroad.
