BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, June 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 6th edition of the World Wellness Weekend (WWW) will begin on Friday September 16, 2022 at sunrise in Fiji, until sunset on Sunday 18 in Hawaii, with “LIVING WELL TOGETHER” as the main objective, coordinated by 130 volunteers around the world (ambassadors and WWW coordinators), in more than 900 cities from Brussels to Winnipeg.
4,000 participating locations in 140 countries will be geolocated on the World Wellness Map so millions of people can find fun, free and inclusive group activities, classes and workshops nearby to share with friends and family.
Professionals and venues register (free) at www.wellmap.org and schedule free group classes September 16-17-18 at their facility or local parks and recreation areas. There is a one class minimum, and sites offering three or more free classes will receive a “2022 Wellness Champion” badge.
The public also connects to www.wellmap.org (18 languages) to search for a city or click directly on their preferred type of activity. They instantly locate nearby places, read the description of the activities and are invited to book in advance (in case of limited free places): yoga classes, fitness sessions, relaxation and guided meditations promoting “inner peace and world peace”, Cancer Aware by Wellness For Cancer webinars supported by Immunocology, activities in Hot Springs, traditional heat ceremonies in Saunas, tree plantings in Brazil and Vietnam, and even dance classes to live the joy of being well! We salute the “Tap & Clap” sessions broadcast across Quebec with the support of the largest association of seniors in Quebec (550,000 members), and a wheelchair basketball game in Punta Cana!
With the support of 60 associations and federations such as IHRSA, ISPA, CIDESCO and ROTARY clubs in Latin America, the sites open their doors and show how their courses and activities are part of the solution for local residents to be more active, more often. Everyone is encouraged to find a fitness buddy or “wellness buddy” to set goals and stay on course for a longer, healthier, happier life.
In association with the Wellness Tourism Association, elected municipal officials and tourist offices are invited to promote their attractiveness through Wellness Tourism throughout the year, and not just the third weekend. of September. Some are actively preparing essential wellness experiences and “wellness weekend packages”, such as Alassio, Bali, Florence, Hué, Marbella, Marseille, Niederbronn-Les-Bains, Punta Cana, Val di Fiemme…
WWW has been aligned with the UNITED NATIONS since 2017, supporting SDG 3 “Good health and well-being for all” and is one of the partners of the European Week of Sport organized by the European Commission.
