February 14, 2019 in Events, Uncategorized, Upcoming events by Teresa Grandi

Wednesday 17th July, central London

Organised jointly by the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Public Health, this conference will consider proposals outlined in the second chapter of the Government’s Childhood obesity plan for action and the position of local authorities as leaders of a whole systems approach to tackling childhood obesity.

Keynote speakers, expert panels and workshops will address questions such as:
  • How are councils helping schools to deliver the healthy weight agenda?
  • How to develop planning strategies to which prioritise local healthy food environments and protect green space?
  • Where should the soft drinks levy be spent to achieve maximum impact on children’s health?

This event will also be one of the first opportunities to hear from councils on the Trailblazer programme about the progress made so far, with a particular focus on the targeting inequalities.
