Abstract: This article present the results of a study which focused on local processes for implementing social agendas-Agenda 21 and Healthy Cities-in the southeast region of Brazil. It looks at the relations between efforts and their effects on social health determinants, especially those which may be understood by considering the relationship between social actors and the system. Six case studies were carried out to analyze the social experience of implementing their respective agendas. Data was collected through Individual and collective interviews, survey documentation and direct observation of experiences. They were analyzed according to previously defined research topics. Results show that values such as participation, collective construction of policies, sustainability and empowerment become part of the ideology and experience of those directly involved. Furthermore, values also positively impact on actions which have been adopted, promoting health and quality of life of citizens living in these localities.
