About World Obesity Day and World Obesity Day Europe
In 2010 the Obesity Day in Europe received the award for ‘Campaign of the Year’ at the European Public Affairs Awards. In 2017 it won the Best European Lobbying Campaign Award.
World Obesity Day Europe 2023 will be held on Saturday, March 4. It brings together healthcare, patient and political communities who are keen to raise awareness of obesity and the many other diseases on which it impacts.
It is an initiative of the European Coalition for People Living with Obesity (ECPO) and is aligned with World Obesity Day being held on the same day in other parts of the world.
Other leading obesity organisations taking part in World Obesity Day include the World Obesity Federation (WOF), the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), The Obesity Society (TOS), Obesity Canada, the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA), the Asia Oceania Association for the Study of Obesity, the Healthy Caribbean Coalition, World Obesity, and the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO)
