Short description
“No Poverty” is the Sustainable Development Goal number 1. Poverty is a global problem on many levels. Living in poverty causes inequality and hardship in nutrition, education, health and various other aspects. Poverty is often inherited. Social entrepreneurship is one way to address these issues. Students work in interdisciplinary teams to explore, research and understand real world problems around poverty and empathize with people to solve problems and create solutions. Creativity and the ability to develop better solutions together are key competences in future work life.

Short description
Diversity and Social Inclusion is a program of study aimed at enhancing awareness of different kinds of social inequalities rooted in many different ways of diversity in our contemporary societies. It supports to develop core competences in health care professionals, social workers with the help of an already piloted interdisciplinary model (ICIC) based on blended learning approach. This model could improve the sensibility to differences in cultural, socio-economic and health status, and the unequal distribution of social resources. A final assignment is required to be presented in the last day of the course, which also serves as the ground for assessment.

 

This programme offers a unique opportunity for you to meet with fellow students and teaching staff from different countries and professional backgrounds to listen to, discuss and debate the issues around inclusion of the most vulnerable group of people in our societies.

COHEHRE Student Conference (DiSI) 2021 @ Hogeschool Rotterdam

Diversity and Social Inclusion (DiSI) is a program of study aimed at enhancing awareness of different kinds of social inequalities rooted in many different ways of diversity in our contemporary societies, including those that especially occur in a super-diverse environment.

It will support the development of core competences in future educators, health care professionals and social workers with the help of an already piloted interdisciplinary model (ICIC) based on blended learning approach.
This model could improve the sensibility to differences in cultural, socio-economic and health status, and the unequal distribution of social resources.

The organization of the course consists of two modules. The expected outcomes of a preparatory assignment (module 1) based on distance learning will result in a 5-day intensive program (module 2) with activities taking place in a multi-professional and multicultural context in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The student conference will be hosted by Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Nature and Adventure
Promoting Well-being 

Description
Urbanization is emerging as one of the most important global health issues of the 21st century, with cities becoming epicenters for chronic, non-communicable physical and mental health conditions. There is growing recognition of the crucial rol of forests and other green spaces adressing this public health care challenge, with over 40 years of research showing that experiences of nature are linked to a remarkable breadth of positive health outcomes: improved physical health and mental well-being, greater social well-being and promotion of positive health behavior. 

Still too often we don’t recognize the effect of nature and evironment on us. When working with clients we should be able to support them to manage everyday activities in their natural environment. This course will teach a mindset of using nature with our clients and to find out more about our own relation towards the environment and life that surrounds us. Making us realise the importance of environments and meaningful experiences for our clients and use them as a part of our work as health and social care professional.
