O Dia Mundial da Obesidade é um dia de ação unificada que exige uma resposta coesa e intersectorial à crise da obesidade. Tem lugar a 4 de Março e é convocado pela Federação Mundial da Obesidade, em colaboração com os seus membros globais.
Centenas de indivíduos, organizações e alianças contribuem todos os anos para o Dia Mundial da Obesidade, envolvendo centenas de milhares de pessoas em todo o mundo.
Previous World Obesity Days have encouraged people to recognise the root causes of obesity, increase knowledge of the disease, tackle weight stigma, foreground the voices of people with lived experience and act to improve the world’s understanding, prevention and treatment of obesity.
This year's campaign theme is 'Changing Perspectives: Let's Talk About Obesity'. We want to harness the power of conversation and stories so that together we can correct misconceptions surrounding obesity and take effective, collective action. Because when we all talk, debate and share, we can shift norms and transform health outcomes for everybody.
You can find out more about World Obesity Day and read about previous campaigns on the World Obesity website.
