World Economic Forum Annual Meeting

23-27 January 2013 Davos-Klosters, Switzerland

Obesity is the fastest-growing chronic disease, killing 2.8 million adults every year. With 1.4 billion overweight adults, we live in a world where unhealthy food, labour-saving devices, motorized transport and sedentary work are prevalent. Fast food sales are also on the rise, blurring the boundaries between meals and snacks.

Dimensions to be addressed:

1. What are the key drivers of the obesity epidemic?
2. What are the societal and economic priorities that challenge our efforts at obesity reduction?
3.What policies need to be implemented?
4. What role does physical activity play?
