European conferences on health promoting schools hosted in Greece (1997) and the Netherlands (2002) outlined the main principles of health promotion in schools and emphasised the importance of partnership between the education and health sectors. This Conference is aimed at strengthening cross-sectoral and intergovernmental collaboration. It will disseminate best practice in the scientific, practical and political aspects of school health promotion. We will attempt to co-ordinate our efforts to create better and healthier school. The Conference will welcome specialists from the health, education and social sectors, governmental, municipal and youth organisations, academic institutions and everybody who is concerned about the health of children.
