Recipients of 2021 World Wellness aWWWards announced


World Wellness Weekend (WWW) is honoring the professionals and corporations that went above and beyond in 2021 to grow awareness around the UN’s 3rd Sustainable Development Goal – ‘Good Health and Wellbeing for All’.


Since 2017, the non-profit WWW has inspired and empowered millions of avid wellness enthusiasts and ‘weekenders’ around the world to be more active more often with family, friends, colleagues and ‘wellness buddies’, following the 5 Pillars of Wellness: Sleep & Creativity; Nutrition & Immunity; Movement & Vitality; Mindfulness & Serenity; and Sense of Purpose & Solidarity.


In 2021, WWW was celebrated in 133 countries by 2,300 venues thanks to the support of 100+ Ambassadors and Coordinators, volunteering their time and passion with local businesses, associations, under privileged communities and local officials. Thousands of in-person activities and workshops were organised in accordance with local health regulations, and 52 hours of wellness videos were produced to encourage those at home to also be active.


Says WWW founder, Jean-Guy de Gabriac: “The World Wellness aWWWards honour people and businesses that truly make a difference, standing as beacons of hope, making wellness enthusiasm safely contagious for all stakeholders. We are humbled by their relentless efforts to make wellness accessible to all, as they inspire people to become influencers among their friends, family, colleagues and ‘wellness buddies’ as agents of positive transformation.”
