Cities are an opportunity to win the fight against both climate
change and type 2 diabetes. Both share similar patterns in human
behaviour that exacerbate global warming and rising disease rates.
Today, we are working with partners in 25 major cities around the
world to advance disease prevention through education and
These partnerships are part of our Cities Changing Diabetes
programme. Since 2015, Cities Changing Diabetes has become a social
movement in its own right, mobilising multiple stakeholders in the
effort to tackle the growing issues of type 2 diabetes and building
more about how we are improving urban health and well-being.
