Background: The Canadian Community of Practice in Ecosystem Approaches to Health (CoPEH-Canada) was launched in 2008, with initial funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and subsequent support from a Public Health Agency of Canada grant entitled "Linking public health, ecosystems and equity through ecohealth training and capacity building".
The CoPEH-Canada is a collaboration between nine Canadian universities (University of British Columbia, University of Northern British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of Guelph, University of Toronto, York University, Université de Moncton, Institut national de la recherche scientifique and Université du Québec à Montréal). The COPEH-Canada's primary objective is to promote and support research, education, policy, creativity, scholarship, critical thinking, and practice in ecosystem approaches to health.
As part of the educational mandate of this initiative, CoPEH-Canada will be hosting its sixth annual 11-day, short course entitled Ecosystem Approaches to Health (Ecohealth) in conjunction with the University of Northern British Columbia, Canada from June 20th to June 30th 2013.
The 2013 short-course will comprise two parts:
1. Ecosystem Approaches to Health Workshop (June 20-23) with ~25 participants, and a teaching team involving members of CoPEH-Canada from across Canada; the workshop is open to professionals, practitioners and graduate students.
2. Ecosystem Approaches to Health Field-school (June 20-30, including the workshop) with a maximum of fifteen participants who will complete the requirements of 3 credit graduate level field-school, taught by UNBC and
CoPEH-Canada team members. Final assignments will be completed in July.
Graduate Training Awards: Graduate students wishing to participate in the full 11-day field-school may apply to receive one of five (5) $1000 awards to help cover the costs to participate in the full 11 day Ecosystem Approaches to Health Field Course.
