WHO Bonn Environment and Health School

WHO Bonn Environment and Health School

Following the first online edition of the WHO Bonn Environment and Health School 2021, we would like to inform you that the WHO school will be continued with two separate online capacity building courses, taking place virtually on seven days from 3 to 24 November 2022. 

The themes for the 2022 courses are:

  • Health impact assessment (HIA)
  • Contaminated sites assessment and redevelopment (CS)

Since the courses will run in parallel, participants will be able to choose to attend only one of the two. The courses will take place twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday, starting on Thursday 3 November and ending on Thursday, 24 November 2022. Learning activities will take place between 09:00 and 14:00 CET, divided into three sessions per day. The courses will apply a problem-based learning approach to support application and reflection of the acquired knowledge.  

Each course has a maximum of 30 places and will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation in Russian. The courses will be offered for free to staff of national as well as subnational authorities working in a respective technical field. 

Course applications need to be made by 9 September 2022. The application can be submitted by the respective participant directly, supported by a formal approval of her/his supervisor. However, due to the limited number of places available a selection of participants will be done by WHO. 

A minimum of 80% attendance and active participation will be required to receive a certificate of attendance. If interested in a training certificate, an additional test will have to be passed at the end of the course. 

Detailed information on the course content, the application process and the criteria for participation is available in Russian and English:

  • Health impact assessment (HIA) ENRU
  • Contaminated sites assessment and redevelopment (CS) ENRU
