What is a Community of Practice?
  • Communities of practice are groups of people who
    have a common interest and are engaged in a
    shared enterprise, through which they both have,
    and further develop, a repertoire of knowledge,
    skills and practices
  • (Wenger, 1998).
  • CoPs respond to professional demand and are
    results oriented. They can serve to develop and
    evolve knowledge, as well as develop innovative
    ideas.

CoPEH-Canada Objectives
  1. to jointly plan and deliver a ecohealth short
    course for students and professionals
  2. to provide a forum for Canadians to consolidate
    and extend the ecohealth approach through
    collaboration, exchange, and scholarly attention
    to methodology, pedagogy and knowledge
    translation
  3. to conduct an integrated program of participatory
    research and evaluation to examine the
    networking, educational and capacity building
    outcomes of the community of practice
  4. to identify and develop strategies for long-term
    regional and institutional capacity to support
    ecosystem approaches to human health.
