In its report “Future of Bremen 2035” the Future Commission has formulated the main objective 8 "My street, my district, my city" as a priority measure to achieve a health promoting urban development by incorporating health aspects into all policy areas in the sense of the Health-in-All-Policies approach (HiAP). Furthermore, it is planned to develop an integrated and preventive strategy "Healthy City Bremen - City of well-being", considering health equity.

An important preparatory work for this is the development of a strategy on how health can be integrated as a cross-cutting issue into district-based administrative cooperation.

The aim of the project at the IPP is to develop recommendations for the identification of approaches for the Health-in-All-Policies strategy as well as for procedures for their establishment in Bremen.

We proceed as follows in three steps:

- Analysis of a selection of national and international guidelines for intersectoral strategies for a health promoting urban (district) development

- Development of a procedure for the analysis of relevant administrative regulations, laws or development plans in different policy areas in Bremen with regard to starting points for HiAP

- Proposals for the initiation or improvement of intersectoral collaboration for a health promoting urban (district) development
