European Health and Well-being Deal launch
On October 12th, we had the pleasure of welcoming our Knowledge Partners to the official launch of our new manifesto, the "European Health and Well-being Deal", which followed after the coalition’s General Meeting.
It was an afternoon of discussions about our initiatives and recommendations to put health and well-being policies in the heart of the EU and its policymaking. Our coalition Chair Vytenis Andriukaitis gave a warm welcome to the participants and delivered an inspiring introduction to the new manifesto and its for the next EU mandate.
We also engaged in two fireside chats with some of our Knowledge Partners – one on physical activity as a part of a healthy lifestyle, with speakers Ariane Gatti, AP4HE Comms Group Chair and Communication & Policy Manager at Federation of Sporting Goods Industry (FESI), and Kiera Wason, EU Affairs Manager at EuropeActive, and the second on digital empowerment in healthcare, with speakers Elisabetta Gatti, Policy Analyst at Johnson & Johnson, and Adela Maghear, Senior EU Affairs Manager at European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC).
A big thank you to all the members who participated in the launch event – and the networking drinks – both in-person and online!
You can now access our manifesto, the European Heath and Well-being Deal, on the new designated webpage – where you can either read the full manifesto text or its executive summary (if you’re pressed on time!).
