World Obesity Day
World Obesity Day is a unified day of action that calls for a cohesive, cross-sector response to the obesity crisis. It takes place on 4 March and is convened by the World Obesity Federation in collaboration with its global members.
Hundreds of individuals, organisations and alliances contribute to World Obesity Day every year, engaging hundreds of thousands of people across the world.
ESDN Obesity works closely with OPEN-EU.
OPEN-EU is a new initiative within OPEN, launched in 2020, which seeks to ensure that all relevant European institutional strategies and policies integrate measures that effectively help support people living with obesity.
OPEN-EU aims to unite key EU experts, policy and decision-makers covering a wide range of areas including disability, urban planning, sports, healthcare, industry and public health amongst others.
The intention of the coalition is to work together to implement a cross-cutting policy approach at an EU level which seeks to ensure that all relevant European institutional strategies and policies integrate measures that effectively help support people living with obesity. A focus will be to ensure EU nations are empowered and able to provide people living with obesity access to fair, effective obesity treatment and management.
