The Strength of Community

Online Event

How exactly do health communities help human beings to thrive? What is about them that is so essential to the way we function as individuals? What can we do, in the midst of escalating poverty and disconnection, to strengthen our communities?

These are the questions ACE-Aware Scotland will be exploring in our 2024 event. There could be no one better to help us in addressing these questions than this year’s invited speaker: Professor Sir Michael Marmot.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot has gained a global reputation for thinking about the causes and corrections to health inequalities. He and his colleagues at the Institute of Health Equity have led two major reviews, in 2010 and in 2020, of the state of British cities and communities. There are 40+ communities in England and Wales that have declared themselves to be acting on ‘Marmot principles’ as they tackle their local challenges.

ACE-Aware Scotland is keen for more members of the Scottish public to know of Professor Marmot’s work. We want to ensure that we have had the very best opportunities to think about how his wisdom and expertise and courage can inform the steps we take in our communities. So we have invited him to be the Keynote Speaker for our 2024 event.

Every year since 2018, when ACE-Aware Scotland held our first conference (with attendance of over 2000 people!), we have hosted a major public event. We invite international speakers whom we think can offer us insights and knowledge that assist us in becoming an ACE-Aware Nation. We are so excited that our 2024 features the eminent and thoughtful voice of Professor Marmot.

We are making one wee alteration to our usual arrangements. Our 2024 event will be held online, allowing even more people to join us. We hope that will include friends and supporters from around the world.

Please join us on 11 September 2024, 7-9pm (BST), as we hear Professor Marmot’s thoughts on steps we can take to strengthen our communities, even in these challenging times. We promise you an evening that will leave you feeling inspired, informed and with your determination refuelled.

Joining details for the webinar will be available to you closer to the event.

We can’t wait to welcome you!
