About the Conference
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join the 1st Active & Healthy Workplaces Conference, to take place on June 16-17, 2020, in Athens, Greece.
With a view to developing and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle balancing out today’s fast paced, stressful and high demanding professional reality, the Hellenic Organization for Company Sport & Health, organizes the Conference under the auspices of the European Lifestyle Medicine Organization.
The Conference is addressed to everyone interested in the concepts of improving lifestyle at work and keeping the right balance between workload, tight deadlines and a healthy and easygoing lifestyle.
The program has been designed so as to bring together professionals and academics from the fields of medicine, physical training, psychology, nutrition, coaching, HR, business administration, occupational & health safety as well as employees who exercise sports and participate in the World Company Sport Games or other similar events. We have strategically scheduled the Conference to take place on the eve of the Athens 2020 World Company Sport Games to facilitate those who wish to participate in both events. Topics will include: Benefits of promoting a healthy lifestyle within the workplace, Public policies for physical activity within the workplace, Financial aspects of adopting a corporate culture of active and healthy lifestyle, Encouraging healthy eating at work, Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, combining active and healthy lifestyle with challenging cases such as shift based jobs. Best practices from companies that have already adopted active and healthy lifestyle at work will be presented while a featured ELMO session will address the issues of research, prevention and treatment of lifestyle-related diseases through physical activity, nutrition, psychology and public health policies. Join the Conference for two days of expert presentations, vivid discussions and case demonstrations and enjoy parallel activities such as healthy snacks, Tai Chi sessions and mindfulness techniques.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 1st Active & Healthy Workplaces Conference in one of the world’s oldest cities, the magnificent and historical city of Athens.
