CO-CREATE joins forces with three other European projects for a 3-day policy symposium

The symposium "Future directions for nutrition and physical activity policies to prevent NCDs across Europe" takes place 14-16 June in Brussels.

The symposium "Future directions for nutrition and physical activity policies to prevent NCDs across Europe" takes place 14-16 June in Brussels.


Obesity is a chronic, relapsing, multifactorial disease, and the main risk factor for several other non-communicable diseases (NCDs).  The growing burden of NCDs are the leading cause of global mortality killing 41 million people each year. Successful policy actions to address physical inactivity, unhealthy diets and sedentary behaviours, key risk factors for NCDs can improve the health and wellbeing of populations and reduce premature mortality.

CO-CREATE has partnered with fellow Horizon 2020 project STOP, as well as The Joint Action (JA) Best-ReMaP and JPI PEN project for this symposium. The four project have shared aims to contribute to our understanding about how to achieve successful policy implementation at different cultural, demographic, or socioeconomic levels. Through this symposium we will share and discuss lessons learned from each of the four projects. This is an opportunity for Co-CREATE partners to talk about our work with young people over the course of the project, as well as some of our work using systems mapping to identify priority policies and their impact on childhood obesity.
