London’s Child Obesity Taskforce in partnership with Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity and the City of Amsterdam will host the inaugural Cities Summit on Childhood Obesity, a multicity gathering to help share learning, develop solutions and consider collective action to tackle childhood obesity in cities across the world.

Across three days of experiential, interactive and participatory content, this inaugural summit will bring together those working in cities across the world who want to change their food and physical environments to help their children eat and drink healthier and be more physically active.

We invite you to join us to:

  • Understand the issue of childhood obesity from new perspectives
  • Find innovative solutions and explore how to apply them in your city
  • Spark fresh thinking and new approaches, placing children at the heart of solutions
  • Showcase and learn from work happening globally to tackle the issue
  • Explore how to overcome the barriers cities face from funding and resources to leadership
  • Foster collaboration and learning to scale impact

Tackling childhood obesity is about making sure that every child has access to the food and activities that they need to thrive - people around the world are trialling ways to make the healthier easier - this event showcases the ways that different players can make change - and provides practical tools to collaborate and maximise the impact.

Storytelling and sharing experiences, practical workshops and networking opportunities will ensure the summit provides delegates with the tools and skills to make an impact in their communities.
