In this thesis we want to study how the future workshop, as a transformational tool, can be used to study how vocational students understand good vocational colleges. We want to use action research, as a health strategy, providing insight into how vocational colleges as a setting can change. The theoretical framework for the study consists of Axel Honneth's recognition theory which we elaborate with the concepts of solidarity and judgment by Søren Juul. Furthermore we will use theory about health concepts, setting and empowerment perspectives. The main conclusions of the thesis is that action research, in this case the future workshop with its democratic approach, can be used as an alternative health strategy for the transformation of the vocational college as a healthy setting. The student need for recognition and the importance of social relationships amongst the group appears as two indisputable components of the good vocational college and hence important for retention.
