Event Description

The determinants of health and well-being are often driven by the interests of big players, which are not always aligned with public health agendas. In order to purposefully engage with these giants while safeguarding the interests of people, we need to conceptualise new partnership models – learn to “dance with elephants” - but we should be careful not to get our toes crushed. The COVID-19 pandemic has put into sharp focus the current fault lines in our systems and highlighted the need for true cross-sector and cross-border collaboration.

The EHFG 2020 will bring to life the Gastein spirit in a virtual environment, and offer a mix of live sessions and streams, on-demand content including interviews, publications and recreational activities, and opportunities to digitally connect with other participants and EHFG partners as well as actively contribute to live discussions. We will be using the conference platform Brella, which offers an immersive conference experience with opportunity for interactive participation and meaningful networking.

Registration for this 23rd EHFG edition is now open; you can find more information regarding the conference programme and registration on our website. Join us online and help us reconceptualise ideas and approaches that are standing in the way of progress. Let’s learn a new dance!
