NCD Action Network is a global network of students, young professionals and concerned citizens taking action against the global injustice of chronic non-communicable diseases (580 members from more than 70 countries). If you haven't signed--up to our Network, please do so at www.ncdaction.org
. If you are interested in tobacco control, nutrition, alcohol, mental health, physical activity, global health, chronic diseases, policy, advocacy, from whatever perspective, this is an opportunity to connect with a global network of like-minded people.
All are welcome to sign-up. Recently we have launched a global community building project called '3rd Thursdays' or '3T'. In cities around the globe on the third Thursday of each month, members get together to to generate ideas, discuss topical subjects and identify mutual opportunities for ongoing collaboration. What we learn from these meetings, acts to inform the wider global network. Here is a report from our second meeting in Sydney recently: http://ncdaction.org/profiles/blogs/march-3t-meeting-a-report-from-sydney
Last month our members hosted gatherings in eight locations around the world from Sydney and New York, to Karachi, and Dhaka. This month, there are ten locations. For more info visit http://ncdaction.org/page/the-3t-project
Time and date: 5.30 pm, 3rd Thursday of each month
Agenda: Meet one-another, share stories, brainstorm ideas on topical subjects, and build connections face to face in a non-pressured environment.
