Confucius Institute at ZUYD in Sittard-Geleen on 28th June

Become Healthier Together with  5000 years  of Chinese Culture 

Can we have a strategy to become healthier?

Do you know that China has a “Medium-to-Long Term Plan for the prevention and treatment of Chronic Diseases (2017 -2025)”? Do you know that China has a “healthy China 2030 Planning Outline”? What is the social welfare and infrastructure to support this strategy? What is the role of an individual in building a healthier living and working environment? What is the impact of thousand years history and tradition on the needs of the society today? How could we learn from another culture about ourselves?

Everyone who is curious about learning about Health from a different cultural perspective, and understanding Culture from a health perspective, is welcome to join us on the two unique and excellent Walk-in workshops and open discussion in Ligne, Ligne 1, 6131 MT,  Sittard-Geelen,

Why Should You Participate?

  • Because you are interested to know about China
  • Because you are interested to see how cultural knowledge can help to build a healthier environment
  • Because you are interested to learn new insights and tools to develop a balanced YOU at school or at work or at home
