PEN Webinar on Tuesday 22. September

Measuring policy actions for healthy and sustainable food and physical activity environments - A SIG Policies and Environment webinar

This symposium to take place on Tuesday, September 22nd at 7.00 h GMT/ 8.00 Irish time/ 9.00 CEST will present, discuss and critique the learnings from international studies on physical activity and food policy monitoring and evaluation.

Policy is about changing systems not people. Public policies involve a mix of complex decisions and actions. The UN Sustainable Development Goals and the WHO action plans for physical activity and nutrition highlight the need to move beyond targeting individual behaviour change to implementing broader policy and system approaches, focusing not only on health but also on sustainability. Guidance is needed on how to effectively monitor policy interventions for accountability and impact, this symposium will present initial ideas for review.
