Past participants say:

  • “The Circle of Health© gives me something concrete and visual to bring to different sectors or disciplines that may speak to them about how we all play a role.”
  • “The workshops are an opportunity to brainstorm, get deeper into issues, get new perspectives, challenge thinking.”
  • “Organized, helpful sessions. Accessible due to webinar format. Complemented with comprehensive well-formatted materials. Personalized.”

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.


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 the use of all 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.
