Food Active Webinar: Adopting the Local Government Declaration on Healthy Weight

Join us for the first ever Food Active webinar!

Register for our first ever webinar to find out more about the Local Government Declaration on Healthy Weight, who has adopted the Declaration and what resources and support is available for local authorities, and how they can get involved.

We will very kindly be joined by one of our local authority adoptees, Lydia Orford, Public Health Programme Lead at Cheshire West and Chester Council. Lydia will be talking us through Cheshire West’s experience and top tips for other prospective local authorities. Lydia will also be able to share the work they have done engaging partners in the Declaration with the partner pledge. What have been the challenges faced in implementing the Declaration? What have been the benefits to your local authority in implementing the Declaration?

There will also be time for a Q&A session at the end of the webinar, to answer any burning questions you may have.

This webinar will be of interest to any local authority in the UK who is interested in finding out more about the Declaration, but also those who are interested in local government action to address obesity, more broadly.

Date: Tuesday 17th March 2020

Time: 2:00-2:45pm
