Learning from each others' experiences in different countries, promoting public health and sharing credible information is more important than ever. Also, other important public health themes should not be forgotten.

- Webinar lectures and seminars, panel discussions, debates or interviews. This can be online or in real life.
- Social media campaigns (e.g. Instagram live sessions, Twitter chats, Q&A with experts)
- Launch of videos, reports, summaries of previous events, and other publications and materials
- Pre-recorded presentations in video format (E.g. slides + audio narration)
- Online challenges about a certain topic or goal
- Online contests (e.g. photos on a specific topic)
- Mass media interviews
- Movie screenings parties
- Classes and workshops (online or in real life)
- Polls and quizzes
- Online training
- Networking events (virtually or in real life)

Even if you are unable to organise your own event, spreading the word is also hugely important.
Our media toolkit will help you disseminate important public health messages and promote any EUPHW event, including the one(s) you may be hosting.
It includes ready-to-go visuals for you to share on social media, in English or in your local language. Alternatively you can simply share this website with your colleagues and friends.
Don't forget to use the official hashtag along the way on social media: #EUPHW
