We would like to invite you to actively participate in a two-day multi-disciplinary conference for researchers, practitioners, commissioners and policy makers with an interest in assets based approaches. Asset based approaches are concerned with identifying the protective factors that create health and well-being. They offer the potential to enhance both the quality and longevity of life through focusing on the resources that promote the self-esteem and coping abilities of individuals and communities. Drawing on concepts that include salutogensis, resilience and social capital, asset approaches create the potential for unlocking some of the existing barriers to effective action on health inequities, so far characterised by more risk-based or deficit approaches. Following the successful first symposium, held in Seville 2010, which focused on young people and youth health, the aim of this conference is to increase the dialogue between public health, health policy, health practitioners, commissioners, social care, the voluntary sector and the research community on key issues relating to health assets across the life course. The organisers welcome empirical and theoretical work that has been undertaken within an assets framework including work on children and youth, mid-life and older people.
