What would happen if Europe approached obesity like other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and focused on addressing the biological causes in approaches to policy along the obesity continuum? This dynamic, participatory session invites you to explore the possible outcomes of a whole system approach to obesity prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management across Europe and the disruptive policy interventions which may be necessary to bring sustainable impact.
We will leverage recent research, identifying challenges and exploring the issue from a wide range of perspectives. You will have the opportunity to join us in our opening fishbowl debate, as well as work in groups to co-define ideal futures and come to consensus over creative solutions for the policy interventions we need to get us there.
