Health is Everyone's Business
How was the Galway Healthy Cities plan developed?
Galway Healthy Cities workplan was developed by the key agencies from Galway City. They worked together to make plans and solved problems in a process known as ‘Collective Intelligence’. This was organised and helped by the Whitaker Institute for Innovation and Societal Change at NUI, Galway.
The group identified and prioritised barriers to health and wellbeing. It then decided actions to overcome barriers.
These actions formed the basis of the Galway Healthy Cities plan for 2015–2018, and are in line with the goals and themes of the WHO Healthy Cities programme.
This plan builds on the work of the last eight years of the Healthy Cities programme in Galway City.
