How to implement

  • Be persistent and engage key stakeholders throughout the lifecycle of a healthy initiative. You could include, for example, community organizations, local leaders, public health teams, schools, local businesses and government officials at multiple levels of government.
  • When developing a community initiative:
    • Engage stakeholders around local needs and opportunities and ensure strategies and key messages continue to be relevant.
    • Develop strong stakeholder relationships to ensure collaboration and accountability.
    • Encourage governments to collaborate across departments and with other local stakeholders.
    • Do not re-invent the wheel! Find out what’s already happening in the community and explore opportunities to collaborate.
