Throughout these workshops, you will engage in dialogue with other participants, learning from their experiences and resources, and add to knowledge development by sharing your experiences. We will use the Circle of Health as a framework for discussion.

Our team of professional facilitators has been providing a variety of online workshops since 2007; revising and building the content in response to new research and participant needs. In these workshops, we will share the lessons we’ve learned from international, intersectoral collaboration since 1996. Click here to read an evaluation of the workshops. Based on the results of the evaluation, we implemented webinar technology with more intreactive features.


The Circle of Health is a comprehensive framework which provides structure and guidelines for organizing, sharing and planning in a systematic way. It is an ideal tool for people who are motivated to bring about change, as it broadens thinking and encourages  use of all of resources and connections to find solutions. It expands thinking by drawing on existing skills and knowledge, and encourages users to look at health as a facet of all programs and sectors. It is well-tested; the framework has been evaluated internationally many times; as have our online workshops. The Circle of Health is available in six languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Serbian), and a facilitator’s handbook has been developed. If you are unfamiliar with the Circle of Health or need to refresh your memory, visit our website and YouTube channel.
