Globally, an estimated 1.9 billion people are overweight, of whom more than 700 million suffer from obesity. The obesity pandemic, so called because of the figures that accompany it and its global expansion, is a medical problem, but also a social one.

In this round table we will discuss these conditioning factors and what alternatives are possible to address the problem of obesity from its most social facet.
