The theme for World Obesity Day is Changing Perspectives: Let’s talk about obesity and the Collective will present a range of expert speakers across lived experience, weight stigma, obesity prevention, and obesity management and treatment.

This year the event will be focussing on the need for action on the National Obesity Strategy (now launched two years ago), presenting national top advocacy actions for prevention, treatment and stigma reduction and sharing a collaboratively developed budget submission.

The virtual Rapid Talks event runs for 90 minutes with a range of expert speakers from across Australia. Each talk runs for 4 to 5 minutes, providing a diversity of viewpoints. The series is open to all interested members of the public. It is an opportunity to highlight research, community leadership, opportunities for action and lived experience, and to understand and address the many facets of obesity and overweight.
