The theme for the conference is the UN post-2015 goals and based on the premise that global health promotion is a common and interdisciplinary matter, the conference will center around discussions on global health-related issues that needs adressing in the coming decades.

- We look forward to welcoming the medical students to Aalborg next year and hope they'll enjoy the time spent in our city and, not least, at our latest addition of truly unique and creative meeting spaces; Musikkens Hus. If a conference arranged here can inspire and contribute to set precedence for a greater interdisciplinary international cooperation within global health related challenges among active and committed young students, it'll be yet another achievement of which Aalborg and Denmark can be proud of.
