– THE CITY OF OVERCOMING OBESITY PROGRAMME

Welcome to attend the first international conference Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki 2018 in next March 12 -15. Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki is a recurring international arena for dialogue on challenges on health and welfare promotion and obesity prevention for professionals, municipalicies, authority, companies, students and to everybody, who is interested in health promotion work. We offer innovative seminars, study visits, networking, inspiring discussions and company meetings.

In 2013 the City of Seinäjoki set the target to reduce obesity and overweight among children and young people. The goal is to promote healthy changes in lifestyle of children and families with lifestyle guidance, nutrition and exercising. The good achievements brought international recognition to the city of Seinäjoki. The Programme demonstrates that prevention is possible and cost-effective. The results prove that a single municipality can set targets for well-being and fulfill them doing consistent work to promote well-being and health of the population. Welcome to experience the City of Overcoming Obesity Programme!


Welcome to Seinäjoki!


I have the great honour to welcome you all to the City of Seinäjoki. Seinäjoki is one of the fastest growing cities in Finland. Our population is now 63,000, but every year we get 600-800 new members on our team. At the same time, the number of employees is growing as well. Our population is also very young, the youngest among Finland’s major cities.

Seinäjoki is the food capital of Finland/Scandinavia. In the field of food, we have strong farmers, enterprises like Atria and Valio, and R&D&I collaboration with universities and private actors. Exports of food and know-how are in full swing. Private investments in factories and business are also at a good level.

When you look around the city centre of Seinäjoki, you will notice at least two points. First, our city centre is under construction, which means that the whole centre will be rebuilt very quickly. Second, you can see the Aalto Centre, the administrative and cultural centre of Seinäjoki, planned by world-famous architect Alvar Aalto. Inside that centre there are the church of Lakeuden Risti, the city hall, a library, a theatre, etc. I hope you have time to visit there.

Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki, a children’s preventative health programme, has so far been a real success story. But we are not resting on our laurels. As Finland’s head coach Curt Lindström said after the 1995 Ice Hockey World Championships gold medal: ’Let’s keep making things better’!

Mayor Jorma Rasinmäki
