World Obesity is the dissemination lead of the STOP project, and recently joined the project consortium and WHO Euro Member States for a conference focused on translating research to policy.
World Obesity was given the opportunity, alongside dissemination partner European Public Health Alliance, to lead a session on the role of civil society in policy.
The session was interactive, and audience members were challenged to consider the role of civil society in policy and the extent to which they are effectively engaged in national and European policy to date.
