This paper aims at discussing the im- portance of the Healthy City Movement as a strategy to improve the quality of life of the population. From the movement's present con- text both in the Brazil and in the world, a pilot experiment carried out in 1996-1998, in the cities of Dionísio and São José do Goiabal, in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, is presented and analyzed. Taking interdisciplinarity, inter- sectorality and participation as basic assump- tions, the strategic planning methodology pro- posed by Carlos Matus was used to develop an action plan to face priority problems in the mu- nicipalities. The active participation of commu- nity groups was encouraged so that at the end of the process this methodology could be assimi- lated by and incorporated to the routine of mu- nicipal administrations. This paper shows some preliminary results and discusses the advan- tages and constraints of this process.
