The long term aim is to contribute to preventing overweight and obesity among children and young people in the EU. It is widely acknowledged to engage local communities in a more structured way in order for them to be more active and competent in this area. Therefore it is important to raise awareness and provide easy access to good practice on promoting healthy eating and physical activity interventions. This will assist local communities and schools to apply more strategic approaches and use innovative tools and whole community approaches which are already available. The overall objective is to increase the quality and level of local community and school interventions all over Europe on promoting healthy eating and physical activity among children and young people, by up scaling good practice and results from previous and current PHP and other European projects, based on networking and dissemination, through the development of a sustainable European web based learning platform.
