Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development. Institutions should create a learning environment and organisational culture that enhances the health, wellbeing and sustainability of its staff, students and community and enables people to achieve their full potential.
"Health Promoting Universities and Colleges transform the health and sustainability of our current and future societies, strengthen communities and contribute to the wellbeing of people, places and the planet…They infuse health into everyday operations, business practices and academic mandates. By doing so, they enhance the success of our institutions; create campus cultures of compassion, wellbeing, equity and social justice; improve the health of the people who live, learn, work, play and love on our campuses; and strengthen the ecological, social and economic sustainability of our communities and wider society.” The Okanagan International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges
