On Sunday 20 May, WHO will be celebrating its 70th anniversary with a major public physical activity event in Geneva, its host city. The first-ever Walk the Talk: The Health for All Challenge is a free, fun and non-competitive event open to people of all ages and abilities. Special guests, including world and Olympic champion athlete Haile Gebrselassie, will be taking part in the event, which is being supported by local and national governments, multiple United Nations agencies and global and local health organizations. A wide range of activities, from a mass yoga session, to hockey and Zumba, will be going on around the five locations that line the three connected routes of the event, which range in distance from 3 kilometres to 8 kilometres and linking major Geneva landmarks.

If you are not in Geneva, you can still join the #HealthForAll movement by showing how, through social media, you “walk the talk” for health. It can be by walking, jogging, riding your bicycle, dancing, doing yoga – as long as you make the move to promote health and for all.
