In this project, based on a literature review and interviews with experts and stakeholders from Lower Austria, a practical guide on selected possibilities for citizen participation in health promotion in communities will be developed. The practical guide is primarily intended for leaders of the "Healthy Community" working groups in Lower Austrian municipalities. Lower Austrian stakeholders are involved in the preparation of the practice guide in order to adequately reflect the contextual factors relevant for participation in health promotion in "Healthy Communities" in Lower Austria and to make the practice guide useful for the target group. This project will be implemented with funds from the Lower Austrian Health and Social Fund (NÖGUS).
