Making a flying start

We helped the municipality of Breda to organise an online kick-off with workshops, to make a flying start for the Local Prevention Agreement. This way, we put the first agreements on paper and created support among local parties. During this period, there were strict COVID-19 measures and a digital conference was the only option. The kick-off was therefore prepared in collaboration with our online team. This ensured efficient communication to local parties and the online environment was set up properly.

Involving local parties

Within the themes of overweight and smoking, Breda wanted to focus on three spearheads: Healthy Workplace, Healthy Aging and Healthy Residents of Hoge Vucht. We further developed these three spearheads into  workshops. Under the guidance of a moderator, local parties discussed their ambitions, their potential contribution and possible collaborations. This way, local parties were involved in the development of the agreements.

For a healthy world

The Breda Local Prevention Agreement is complete! Much remains to be done, but the beginning is there. Within the 3 sub-themes, 9  workshops took place, 28 agreements were made and 32 public and private parties were included in the agreement. This is how we work together for a healthy, sustainable world.

We set to work with weekly process guidance. Firstly, we discussed the main points of the agreement. In addition, the ideas of Positive Health were integrated into the preparations, in order to give shape to the final result: the Prevention Agreement. During this time, there were strict COVID-19 regulations and digital meetings were the only option. Therefore, the kick-off was prepared in collaboration with our online team. In this way, the technical communication towards the local parties was efficiently taken care of and the online environment was properly set up.
