Gives an account of the third European Spring School on Health Education, held in Setubal, Portugal, in April 1995. The aim of the Spring School was to bring together a range of Europeans involved in health education at various levels in order to promote the concept and the development in practice of the health‐promoting school. Describes how lead responsibilities for health education vary in schools of the 31 nations present, and how political, economic and geographic factors influence the meaning and delivery of health education in different countries. Concludes that developing and adapting to changing times remains as much of a challenge for UK schools as for those across Europe.
