By the end of 2016, the OPEN project aims to strengthen the methodology of Community Based Programmes (CBPs), Initiatives (CBIs) or Public Organizations, willing to implement sustainable strategies and actions to prevent obesity at local and national level.
The project will scale-up and increase capacity of the Coordination Teams (CTs) in terms of scope of action, design, implementation and evaluation methods.
The objective is also to support the CTs in widening their target groups scope, including adolescents living in deprived areas.

Increasing the CTs capacity and skills, the project will facilitate and accelerate behavior and environmental change to reduce overweight and obesity-related diseases among European children and adolescents.
