13th EUSPR Conference and Members’ Meeting
EUSPR 2022 is being held in Tallinn, Estonia on 29th and 30th September 2022, with workshops and project meetings scheduled for the pre-conference day, September 28th.
Our theme this year is ‘Prevention – Between Ethics and Effectiveness’ and our keynotes and special sessions, in a hybrid format, will focus on discussing the challenges of being both effective and ethical in prevention.
Different aspects of ethical prevention will be explored, such as if prevention or doing prevention is always ethical, what is prevention allowed to do, how ethical aspects can affect the strategic communication about interventions, and what can science learn from practice about interventions.

Every corner of Estonia is different. At the same time, everything is delightfully compact: a few hours will get you from one end of the country to another, and you can quickly swap the mainland for an island, or the bustle of the city for a forest lake.
On the evening of September 29, you will have the opportunity to participate in one of our four guided walking tours introducing different regions of Tallinn. Each tour lasts about 1.5–2 hours and ends in an appropriately themed café or restaurant, where refreshments will be provided, giving you the chance to sample some local flavours. The tour and refreshments will be free of charge. If you wish, you can also stay and enjoy dinner at the restaurant of your choice at your own expense.
You can set up your ExOrdo account and register for the conference in here!
This year we have 5 pre-conference workshops available, two in the morning (9:30–12:00) and 3 in the afternoon (13:00–16:30). All the workshops take place on the 28th of September.
In addition, participants interested in school-based prevention have an opportunity to visit Estonian classrooms where PAX GBG is implemented and reflect the observations later with the mentor and the teacher. Classroom visits are limited to 15 participants and take place in the morning of 28th September.
This year’s keynote speakers bring experience from various disciplines and discuss the ethical aspects related to prevention research and prevention implementation. In addition, the focus will be on the cross-sectoral impact of prevention and talks with highlight the link between climate change and health as well as health and economy.

Why this theme?
Prevention science has gained more recognition in Estonia and the rest of Europe in the past years. At the same time, some challenges affect the implementation of high-quality prevention. Understanding the value of prevention is considered essential, particularly while aiding people at risk of developing a health problem. Although most professionals are sufficiently qualified in their respective fields, they often lack the support and training needed to effectively promote and provide prevention interventions.
The conference will help to:
- illustrate the value of prevention
- contribute to prevention advocacy in Estonia
- raise the quality of prevention in Estonia
- communicate the latest developments in prevention science
- support networking between European practitioners and scientists.
We encourage everyone to join conference’s Facebook event where all useful information will be added continuously.
