Workers’ health and well-being are essential to the productivity, competitiveness and sustainability of enterprises, communities, and economies.

With the launch of the Cities Changing Diabetes program in Manchester, this seminar focuses on how cities can integrate diabetes prevention into their city strategies and promote healthy workplace benchmarking in order to create long-term, sustainable change.

The symposium brings together British and Danish interest groups, including government, academia, architects, health experts and leading solution providers to discuss how cities can promote new innovative solutions that improve the health and well-being of workers and citizens by promoting healthy habits and ultimately contribute to the UN’s sustainable development goals.

This symposium is sponsored by Novo Nordisk.

  • HE Lars Thuesen, Ambassador of Denmark
  • Professor David Napier, Professor of Medical Anthropology, UCL
  • Dr Sophie O’Connell, Project Manager, Leicester Diabetes Centre
