We’re delighted to announce the partnership between Health Education and EERA’s Health and Wellbeing Education Network.
The Health and Wellbeing network will produce one special issue a year in partnership with the journal Health Education.

A proposed special issue, Conceptual and Methodological Problems in the field of wellbeing education, could not proceed due to insufficient submissions.
We held a book launch to mark the publication of Network 8 book, ‘Wellbeing and schooling: Cross cultural and cross disciplinary perspectives’ (June 21st 2022, in association with University of Edinburgh). This text forms part of the EERA book series ‘Transdisciplinary perspectives in educational research’. Many Network 8 members, including the editors and several chapter authors participated in the event.
Proposal for workshop at ECER 2024 focused on diversity, power & privilege in Health and Wellbeing Education. We also plan to apply for network funding to facilitate and sustain new and existing collaborations in the field of health and wellbeing education.
