Event description

Description

The causes of obesity exist in the places where we live, work and play, where the food and built environment often make it difficult to make healthier lifestyle choices. Tackling the causes of obesity is complex; there is no one single solution. We will only address the causes and begin to reduce obesity prevalence if it becomes everyone's business and is prioritised and embedded in everything we do.

The Healthy Weight Summit is an extension of a national 'Whole Systems Approach' and will build upon existing work, beginning with the first of two workshops.

Please join us and be a part of the solution.


Workshop 1: Understanding the local causes and consequences of obesity to develop a shared vision.

Topics to be covered:

· Consequences and realities of obesity

· Consequences of obesity in the local area

· Why a whole systems approach?

· Understanding the causes of obesity in Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes

· Developing our vision


Who should attend?

Stakeholders from across all local authority sectors, elected members, external organisations (public, private, and voluntary sector), community representatives.
