International trends are playing out in the European context in unique and dynamic ways.
Brexit, increased migration, rising nationalistic values, polarization, health system reforms and individualistic governance trends are all influencing how Europe positions itself on the global arena.
Health inequalities continue to exist within European countries, as well as stark employment, income and health inequalities are seen between Western, Central, and Eastern European countries.
Parallel to these transitions is the voice of the European citizens. The citizen response has displayed an increase in bottom-up initiatives, displaying solidarity and action in these dynamic times. These transitions all influence dramatically the occupational lives and health of communities, groups and individuals within the European context.
This conference will explore the impact these global transitions have on the occupational lives and health of individuals, groups and communities in Europe and will pose the question: What can occupational science contribute to this transitioning context and the challenges and possibilities it presents?
- Individual in transition: the individual as an occupational being within the European context
- Communities in transition: citizens and communities impacted by and responding to transitions seen in Europe today
- Occupational Science in transition: what is the methodological and theoretical response required by Occupational Science in the dynamic European context of today?
