PREVENTING OBESITY ACROSS EUROPE: A CALL TO ACTION

Policy Symposium in Brussels with a strong final statement: A CALL TO ACTION - POLICY, RESEARCH, AND FUNDING PRIORITIES FOR SYSTEMS CHANGE

First page Final Statement

In June 2022, four European projects came together for a conference exploring future directions for nutrition and physical activity policy across Europe. The projects - CO-CREATE, STOP, Best-ReMap and PEN – are each exploring different considerations, emerging evidence and policy monitoring, for improving nutrition and physical activity to help prevent childhood obesity, other non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and improve the health of populations.


These four projects represent the largest, multi-country consortium projects focused on diet and physical activity in Europe. In this document, we present the key achievements of the four projects to date in line with the symposium discussions, as well as a collective vision for future policy, research and funding.
