In all our education activities we draw on interdisciplinary perspectives and experiment with learning formats to prepare learners to work for people’s health under conditions of globalisation and rapid technopolitical change.

The Participatory Public Health Centre emphasises active learning by introducing real-life problems and practical assignments in the education. Learners are offered opportunities to not only obtain latest knowledge, but also to develop skills in collaboration, communication, and leadership.

The PPHC offers several education options. Some of our education activities are embedded in degree programmes, others are offered as separate online and offline courses open for everyone interested.
