German Prevention Congress: Children at the heart of prevention


27th German Prevention Congress (DPT) with its main topic “Children at the heart of prevention”

A special new congress format has been developed for this year's 27th German Prevention Congress (DPT) with its 15th Annual International Forum (AIF). Taking pandemic and climate change into account, the organizers wanted to optimise the information sharing and personal encounters in the broad field of prevention. Under the main theme “Children at the heart of prevention” this year's hybrid congress runs throughout nearly the whole year (March to November 2022). The congress comprises two components:

  1. DPT-TV: weekly online broadcast – every Wednesday! From 2nd March  DPT-TV has gone on air every week on Wednesday from 11 am to 12 noon (CET). Each broadcast starts with 10 minutes of “DPT-News”, in which current prevention topics are discussed (publicly accessible). Afterwards three parallel lecture sessions on different topics are presented. At the end there is an opportunity for an open exchange and discussion in online format.
  2. DPT-On site on 4th & 5th October 2022: Two congress days will take place on site at the Hannover Congress Centrum (HCC), Germany. The focus there will be on personal encounters and networking. Various actors and stakeholders in the field of prevention will be presented in a large congress exhibition. In addition, there will be several side events and activities, keynote lectures and an festive evening event.
