Germany and Scotland: partnership and networking
Pages 9

In Chapters 4 and 5, partnership and networking was identifi ed as a key component for successful implementation of health promoting schools. This chapter presents two case studies addressing the importance of partnership and networking at national level and at regional and local level. The partnership and networking between the health and education sector and between stakeholders’ organisations (ministries, schools, NGOs) and individuals (ministers, principals, teachers, parents and students) opened doors to discuss and defi ne how health promoting schools can also contribute to achieve educational goals. This common understanding was core to the priority and thereby the success of the implementation.
