The Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy and Safe Communities will be returning to Charlottetown and the University of Prince Edward Island on August 19-22, 2008 for its 5th year! Mark this date in your calendar now - If you haven’t been to the Institute before, now is the time to get involved!

The Atlantic Summer Institute (ASI) is more than just a conference, it’s a learning Institute, with a curriculum that offers a certificate of participation. The Summer Institute really engages participants, providing them with an opportunity to develop skills, learn and share knowledge and work together on programs, policies and services.

The Institute makes the links between crime prevention, social and economic development and health and safety promotion and brings together; community groups, researchers, practitioners, educators, police and government representatives, all the many people and sectors that are working toward creating safer and healthier communities in Atlantic Canada.

This year’s theme is on Literacy; “Reading Between the Lines: Health, Safety and Literacy.” Please pass this along to anyone you know who might like to join us this year!

Materials from the 2007 Institute have been posted online at: www.upei.ca/~asihsc .  

The 2008 Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy and Safe Communities is sponsored by the Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health, and is being supported under the Government of Canada’s National Crime Prevention Strategy. Hosting and partnering with the ASI again this year is the Centre for Life-Long Learning at the University of Prince Edward Island.
