World Health Day - 7 April 2010
1000 Cities, 1000 Lives
Thank you to over 1500 cities who participated in the 1000 cities 1000 lives campaign!
With the campaign 1000 cities, 1000 lives, events were organized worldwide during the week of 7–11 April 2010.
The global goals of the campaign were:
- 1000 cities: to open up public spaces to health, whether it be activities in parks, town hall meetings, clean-up campaigns, or closing off portions of streets to motorized vehicles.
- 1000 lives: to collect 1000 stories of urban health champions who have taken action and had a significant impact on health in their cities.
