Abstract

Health and education are fundamental aspects of human and social development, which we will analyze through the lens of the Socio-phenomenological approach applied in both health promotion and education. Health is constitutively related to education, and it cannot be intended just as a psychobiological condition. Self-determination of our own health requires assuming responsibility and active citizenship. The right of deciding about our own health cannot be automatically accomplished through an «innate» capacity, but it requires education, metaphorically intended as a flywheel that initially allows the individual to acquire awareness of his/her health needs/desires and, later, to assume a political position in the community, in order to make those needs/desires acknowledged. How can we avoid to reduce health promotion activities in schools and community to tandardized practices, which do not consider the embodied needs/desires of the individuals? The Socio-phenomenological approach calls to the «human» component of preventive activities, connecting the individuals’ need for wellbeing with the common good.
