Velika nam je čast najaviti Petu Europsku školu socijalne pedijatrije sa temom „Dijete u gradu“. U suradnji s Internacionalnim društvom za socijalnu pedijatriju (International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health, Europskom mrežom gradova prijatelja djece (European Network Child Friendly Cities), Središnjim koordinacijskim odborom akcije Gradovi – općine prijatelji djece te Školom narodnog zdravlja „Andrija Štampar“ Medicinskog fakulteta Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, od 16. do 18. lipnja 2016. godine organizira se 5. Europska škola socijalne pedijatrije, ona ima zadaću prikazati hrvatski i nekolicinu najuspješnijih svjetskih modela organizacija koje sprovode programe grad – prijatelj djece. Kako je riječ o aktivnostima od prvorazrednog značaja za zdravlje, rast i razvoj djece namjera je povezati organizacije koje sprovode akciju gradovi – prijatelji djece i socijalne pedijatre kako bi snažnije istaknuli javnozdravstveni značaj ovih aktivnosti.
Europska škola socijalne pedijatrije se po peti puta održava u Hrvatskoj. Programski škola otvara nove teme i širi nove koncepte skrbi o ranom rastu i razvoju djece s pozicije interdisciplinarnosti, uloge šire i lokalne zajednice i Konvencije o pravima djeteta Ujedinjenih naroda.
Akciju „Gradovi i općine-prijatelji djece“ osmislili su, pokrenuli i vode od 1999. godine Savez društava Naša djeca Hrvatske i Hrvatsko društvo za preventivnu i socijalnu pedijatriju, uz pokroviteljstvo Ureda UNICEF-a za Hrvatsku. Njezin je cilj stvaranje zdravog, sigurnog, poticajnog okružja za rast i razvoj djece u lokalnoj zajednici. a neke od posebnosti su da programski obuhvaća sva područja života, potreba i aktivnosti djece. Trenutno u akciji sudjeluje 106 gradova i općina, a 51 grad / općina imaju prestižan status prijatelja djece. Jedan od važnih uvjeta za dobivanje tog statusa je i aktivno sudjelovanje djece u životu svojih lokalnih zajednica kroz aktivnosti u Dječjim vijećima i Dječjim forumima. Djeca aktivno sudjeluju i pri donošenju odluke o dodjeli počasnog naziva svome gradu ili općini. Hrvatski program „Gradovi i općine – prijatelji djece“ svrstan je među tri najbolja u Europi, a Hrvatska je i aktivna članica Europske mreže gradova prijatelja djece. U okviru te suradnje 2012. godine u Zagrebu je održana međunarodna konferencija „Dijete u gradu“ u organizaciji Europske mreže gradova prijatelja djece, Europske zaklade za djecu i Središnjeg koordinacijskog odbora akcije „Gradovi i općine – prijatelji djece“. Grad Zagreb bio je pokrovitelj i domaćin, a okupila je preko 130 sudionika iz svih krajeva svijeta. Centar dječjeg zdravlja sudjeluje u izradi stručnog dijela programa i tehničkoj potpori.
Medicinski fakultet Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, preciznije Škola narodnog zdravlja „Andrija Štampar“ sa svojom tradicijom, namjenom i stručnim potencijalom, doprinosi promicanju novih znanja, ideja, gada Zagreba i Republike Hrvatske.
Na konferenciji će govoriti brojni strani i domaći stručnjaci iz spomenutih područja.
Ovogodišnjom Europskom školom socijalne pedijatrije Hrvatska se uključuje u Europski i širi međunarodni prostor. Okupljanjem inozemnih predavača i sudionika želi se omogućiti prijenos hrvatskih ideja i iskustava što istovremeno doprinosi prepoznatljivosti grada Zagreba (Grad – prijatelj djece) i Hrvatske. Očekuje se potpora gradskih vlasti i svih onih koji djeluju na spomenutim područjima brige za zdravlje i djecu te se očekuje daljnji razvoj programa zaštite zdravlja i prava djece.

So far in Croatia, in co-organization with ISSOP, we four European schools of social pediatrics were held. Next, 5th School in 2016 will be dedicated to the topic Child friendly cities.
Child in the City programmes represent very complex activities aiming to improve health of children in urban areas. Essentially they have strong impact on physical, mental and social health of children, so they should be a point of interest for professionals dealing with social and preventive pediatrics. In multidisciplinary approach we expect more active role of pediatricians in promotion, introduction, monitoring and evaluation of national Child in the City programmes.
European Network of Child Friendly Cities specific model is based upon experiences of several best developed national programmes (France, Spain, Croatia). Here are some information on EN CFC:
“Child in the City” is an international community and platform with about 3000 interested members dealing with issues related to the wellbeing of children concerning city space for children, children’s rights to play, children’s health or in general children’s wellbeing in cities and communities. The right for children to participate in decision-making processes during a city’s design and planning is important part of CFC program.
Respectable efforts in this field are done by Child Friendly Asia Pacific Regional Network. Experiences and specificities of this model, hopefully, will be one of the topics of 5th European School of Social Pediatrics in Zagreb.
We will bring Child in a City academics and practitioners together with pediatricians to elaborate indivisibility of physical, mental, social and educational health of a child and consequent need for cooperation.
We are inviting you to take part at 5th European School and take opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences.
