Marie Bergmann

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project examines the possibilities and limitations in integrating health promotion in The Danish Folk High School seen from The Association of Danish Folk High School’s (FFD) point of view. The focal points are young people’s health problems starting from some of those, the government points out as the worst, which is lack of well-being, stress and bad habits concerning food and exercise. To examine possibilities and limitations for The Danish Folk High School to take part in reducing these problems is used Aron Antonovsky’s theory about sense of coherence and some specific pedagogical approaches in health promotion. In the analyzes the theories’ and the pedagogical approaches’ perspectives on health are compared with The Folk High Schools perspectives and held up against each other. Following is drawn a conclusion and made a suggestion to a concrete health promotion initiative in The Folk High School, which gives a new perspective.
