The first unified World Obesity Day will take place on 4th March 2020

Obesity is now a global crisis affecting more than 2 billion people. We are launching a new World Obesity Day on March 4, 2020, to call for a global response to this critical challenge.

The new unified World Obesity Day 2020 will focus on changing the narratives around obesity globally in coordination with national and regional efforts.

Together, we can change the narrative around obesity.


Increase knowledge and understanding of the challenge of obesity, and what can and should be done to overcome it.


Encourage associations and supporters to get involved with advocacy and campaigning on obesity-related issues.


Encourage governments to take urgent action to meet their commitment to halt the rise in obesity by 2025.


Share national experiences of campaigning to enable the spread of best practices.
