The 2016 European Obesity Forum (EOF 2016) will take place on 24 and 25 November in Amsterdam with the second day of the congress dedicated to the closing ceremony of the EU-funded OPEN project. The network’s European and international members will gather in the Dutch capital to share best practices, meet old friends and form new partnerships.
The first day of the EOF 2016 will be dedicated to the Freshers programmes. During this day, the Freshers programmes will participate in capacity-building workshops and learn about the future developments of Epode International Network. During the evening the participants will have the opportunity to network in an informal setting while exploring the beautiful city of Amsterdam on a boat cruise.
EOF 2016 will conclude with the closing event of the the highly successful OPEN project which is finishing its three year run at the end of 2016. The OPEN closing event will offer a diverse programme which is divided between the two objectives of the OPEN programme:
• Targeting adolescents in community-based programmes aiming at preventing obesity
• Scaling-up community based programmes (CBPs) for the prevention of childhood obesity
