The First Conference of the European Network of Health Promoting Schools held at Halkidiki, Greece, in May 1997 concluded that:
1. The success of the Health Promoting School across Europe warrants further widespread implementation.
2. Education and Health Ministries should collaborate in an expansion of the Health Promoting School scheme.
3. Health Promoting Schools contribute significantly to the social and economic development of society at large.
4. The Health Promoting School is not a prescriptive approach. Although operating to a core set of values and principles, each health promoting school will reflect local cultural, organizational and political considerations.
5. The concept of the Health Promoting Schools is holistic in nature and, in addition to curriculum development, strives to promote a health enhancing social and physical environment within the community.
6. Action learning rather than teaching should be the focus of the Health Promoting Schoolsâ€™ curriculum. The challenge to teachers is to develop and implement new and innovative approaches to learning.
7. Success is dependent, at least in part, upon the extent to which there is an investment in both initial and in-service teacher training.
8. Schools should be viewed as a resource for the wider community with their facilities available for use outside of normal school hours.
9. Improved equity should be both a goal for and a consequence of the Health Promoting School.
10. Young people and their parents should play a significant role in determining school priorities.
11. Schools should act as a catalyst in bringing together a wide range of local organizations in a coordinated approach to community health.
12. Implementation requires an active partnership between parents, teachers, community organizations, and young people themselves.
13. Wherever possible, Health Promoting Schools should use existing international networks (e.g. Healthy Cities) to promote inter-school collaboration across national boundaries.
14. Although already clearly successful, there is a continuing need for further development to be evidence based.
