CO-CREATE, STOP, JA Best-ReMaP and PEN are four European projects that address the global obesity epidemic. These projects have joined efforts hosting a series of World Café webinars to present progress to date.
We are delighted to welcome you to the second event of the World Café series:
Childhood obesity – what are the root causes of the growing pandemic?
This webinar will showcase preliminary findings from the STOP project's research on prenatal and early life influences on childhood obesity, the epigenetic, metabolic determinants of obesity and more.
Date: Tuesday 29 June 2021
Time: 13:00 - 14:00 CEST
In this webinar we aim to:
- increase understanding of prenatal and early life influence on childhood obesity related outcomes.
- investigate the impact of the built environment, such as food availability and the impact of exposure to pollutants on childhood obesity-related outcomes.
- present recommendations for immediate action across the obesity spectrum from prevention to treatment, within the context of COVID-19.
- identify causal pathways to guide the prevention of obesity in children.
We hope will join the webinar!
