PA-EPI is officially launched!

PEN researchers present the Physical Activity Environment Policy Index (PA-EPI)

The Physical Activity Environment Policy Index (PA-EPI) is a tool to designed to help answer the overarching question: how much progress have governments made towards good practice in improving PA environments and implementing physical inactivity prevention policies and actions? To address physical inactivity, a ‘healthy‘ PA environment is paramount. The PA environment is defined, for the purpose of the PA-EPI, as the collective physical, economic, political, and sociocultural contexts, opportunities, and conditions that influence one’s PA choices and behaviours.

Policy symposium on NCD prevention

Policy symposium "Future directions for nutrition and physical activity policies to prevent NCDs across Europe" 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. The Joint Action (JA) Best-ReMaP, projects CO-CREATE, PEN and STOP aim to contribute to understanding how to achieve successful policy implementation at different cultural, demographic, or socioeconomic levels.
