All systems go for World Wellness Weekend 2022

Over 4,000 participating venues in 140 countries are set to take part in the 6th edition of WWW (World Wellness Weekend), which runs from 16 to 18 September.

These venues will offer free, fun and inclusive group wellness activities, classes or workshops.

Says WWW founder, Jean-Guy de Gabriac: “Since 2017, WWW has aligned with the UN to support its SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) 3, namely ‘Good Health and Well-being for All’, through 5 Pillars of Wellness. These are: Sleep & Creativity; Nutrition & Immunity; Movement & Vitality; Mindfulness & Serenity; and Sense of Purpose & Solidarity.

“During the Covid pandemic, the focus was on boosting vitality, serenity, resiliency and immunity. However, the dramatic events in Beirut, Myanmar and now Ukraine place solidarity at the forefront, as well as the necessity of living well together. As such, millions of wellness seekers and active travelers are encouraged to team up with a friend (i.e. ‘Wellness Buddy’), family or colleagues to set a specific goal to be ‘fitter together’ and, once achieved, to support the association of their choice in order turn the miles on their pedometer into money. People running on treadmills, walking to work, jogging, cycling or hiking for fun and health, will support those who walk for days to flee war and devastation, leaving everything behind and praying that hope and help is on the way.”

De Gabriac emphasises that WWW is not just an annual weekend with free activities before the September equinox, but a year-round movement and a vibrant network of professionals motivated by making a difference in fitness, mindfulness, well-being, beauty, hospitality and tourism.

“We share international best practices to elevate the guest experience and drive more clients into spas, clubs and hotels with meaningful activities to enhance healthy lifestyles with a sense of purpose. This would not be possible without the outstanding contribution of 117 volunteers around the globe (i.e. WWW Ambassadors and Coordinators), who infuse their network with enthusiasm, encourage venues to be innovative, groups to instill a culture of wellness, and cities to be more aligned with the UN’s SDGs,” he says.
