Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki: Integrating Health in All Policies

The obesity of children is a serious health problem today’s world. Attempts to fight this trend have mostly failed. Seinäjoki, however, makes an exception. Between the years 2009-2015, children obesity was halved in the city, a fact proven by the World Health Organization (WHO). The success in Seinäjoki is explained by the “Health in all policies approach”, in which municipal health department does close co-operation with the education, childcare, nutrition, recreation and urban planning to guarantee that schools and day care centers combine their forces in curbing obesity by providing high quality services. In this Innovation Tour, you will meet Seinäjoki city officials, researchers and third sector actors and learn from them how to bring health in all policies.
