Bottom-up: Ein Weg zur Entkolonialisierung der internationalen Zusammenarbeit?

14 Juni 2022 | 13.30-16.30 Uhr, MMS Roundtable

Medicus Mundi Schweiz Die koloniale Herkunft der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit prägt deren Denkweise, Struktur und Praxis bis heute mit. Während viele Organisationen bereits seit langem ihre Arbeit nicht mehr als «Hilfe», sondern als gleichberechtigte Zusammenarbeit mit Partner:innen im globalen Süden beschreiben, basiert die konkrete Arbeitspraxis noch zu oft auf Machtstrukturen, die Abhängigkeiten festschreiben und die Entfaltung von lokalen Ressourcen verhindern.

Swiss Public Health Conference 2022

«Gesunde Umwelt für gesunde Menschen»

13-14 September 2022 | Kursaal Bern, Schweiz

Public Health Schweiz "Ein intakter und attraktiver Lebensraum fördert nachweislich die Gesundheit und das Wohlbefinden. (...) Die Swiss Public Health Conference 2022 und die Stakeholderkonferenz Nationale NCD-Strategie gehen diesen Zusammenhängen nach: Expert:innen zeigen auf, wie Umweltfaktoren unser physisches und psychisches Wohlbefinden beeinflussen und in welch komplexer Weise sie mit der Gesundheit des Menschen interagieren. Wir fragen aber auch bei der Politik nach: Der Bundesrat möchte in seiner Strategie 2030 die Gesundheit über die Umwelt fördern, und die WHO hat ihre Leitlinien zur Luftqualität verschärft. Doch wo steht die Umsetzung? Wie können wir gesunde und attraktive Lebensräume für alle schaffen, und welche Rolle spielt der Klimawandel?"
