Community of Practice
What is a Community of Practice?
A Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common concern, a set of issues, or an interest in a topic and who come together to achieve both individual and group goals.
The goal of SafeHabitus CoPs is to empower farm health and safety actors and relevant stakeholders, to enhance learning and exchange knowledge, to co-design and pilot practical solutions for occupational health and safety and evaluate their implications for farmers, farm workers, farm stakeholders and rural communities.
Who can be part of the SafeHabitus CoP ?
Farm holders, farm workers, and their representatives
Health authorities, health and safety professionals
Policy makers at local, regional, national level
Academia and researchers
Third sector organisations active in the relevant topics
Where & when
Improving farm health and safety requires action from a range of stakeholders.
The CoPs are expected to be set and start working in autumn 2023. The annual programme for the CoP workshops will be published in September 2023. The members of the CoP will meet regularly, 2 – 4 times per year (in-person and/or online) from autumn 2023 until December 2026.
The CoP coordinator in each country will share the agenda and registration form, prior the workshop with the members. Participation in all meetings is not compulsory but strongly recommended.
