The event of site visit organized under the auspices of Joint Action Chrodis+ was held on August 13-14th in Helsinki, Finland, hosted by THL. The event provided a platform for deeper approach understanding of the methodology of JOGG implementation both at local and national level. Selected elements of JOGG will be adapted and implemented within the Health Promoting Community Programme (HPC) in Iceland by the Directorate of Health.
The JA-CHRODIS Good Practice “JOGG” addresses children and adolescent obesity and encourages all people in a town or neighbourhood to make healthy food and physical activity an easy and attractive lifestyle option for young people. HPC is an umbrella for comprehensive health promotion work in municipalities, including all school levels. HPCs main aim is to support communities/schools to create supportive environments that promote healthy lifestyle, health and well-being for all. Iceland will adapt selected elements concerning the structure of the JOGG program and the main aim of the HPC will continue to be well being for all.
