SHE partners with multiple sectors worldwide to bolster UNESCO’s educational capabilities and disseminate sustainable health education. Mobility is vital, as we provide expertise and welcome students and researchers to join us.

SHE’s visiting professor program

SHE’s visiting professor program facilitates interaction with key institutions in Norway (Institute of Public Health, Norwegian Directorate of Health) and globally (University of Oxford, Imperial College London, etc). Our visiting professors actively partake in student mentorship and instruction.

Here you can find a complete list of people associated with our centre.

Circle U.

In partnership with the European university alliance Circle U., SHE provides courses, seminars, and summer schools in sustainable health education. We also host a mobility program for young researchers within the alliance. Read an interview with one of our guest researchers here.

SHE’s leader, Eivind Engebretsen, serves as an Academic Chair within the alliance, overseeing summer schools, courses, and other educational initiatives across partner universities. This role furthers the global reach of SHE’s concepts and models.

Choosing Wisely Program

This national student-run programme is supported by SHE in collaboration with the Norwegian Medical Association and their Choosing Wisely («Gjør Kloke Valg») campaign. The programme brings the students into dialogue about real-life sustainability dilemmas in clinical decision making, challenging their normative, systems-oriented and future oriented thinking skills as they engage with the full sustainability agenda for health. The programme consists of an educational part and a project assignment that is supervised by a senior researcher.

World Health Organisation (WHO)

SHE and WHO are partnering for a student placement project, launching in Fall 2023. Stay tuned for more information.
