For World Obesity Day Europe, ECPO’s aim is to increase knowledge and understanding of the need for action at both European and national levels to improve prevention, treatment and care.
World Obesity Day
World Obesity Day is a global event, held annually on March 4 to bring people together to raise awareness and increase knowledge about obesity and the many other diseases on which it impacts.
The European Coalition for People Living with Obesity (ECPO) and the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) have aligned their activities under World Obesity Day Europe, to take place on the same day.
COVID-19 and Obesity
The role of ECPO in this crisis is crucial in the dissemination of science-based information and providing common-sense, evidence-based updates, recommendations and guidance.
ECPO are committed to sharing only the latest well evidenced information and guidance from credible sources.
Join us and get involved
Although World Obesity Day Europe is an international awareness day, the activities and initiatives that take place around it are just as important.
These include events held at local, national and international level held in the weeks leading up to WOD Europe. Many of them also continue during the weeks immediately afterwards.
We have a wide range of resources available to help you organise your own events and initiatives for World Obesity Day Europe. These range from the artwork for posters, banners and leaflets, to cards and messages which you can use on social media.
