Covid-19 has had devastating repercussions on the Spa, Beauty, Fitness, Hospitality and Tourism industries, shutting down businesses for months, and some permanently. The global pandemic has also shown that resilience and grit are part of the DNA of the professionals of these sectors. So, we are pleased to announce that the 2021 World Wellness Weekend will proceed as scheduled on September 18 and 19 in 120 countries.
In 2020, World Wellness Weekend (WWW) was not cancelled, nor postponed. It was celebrated in 109 countries, by 1,123 venues across 543 cities. In 2021 with the support of 60+ organisations and the official proclamations from Secretaries of Tourism, Governors, Mayors, Visitors’ bureaus, WWW is aiming to gather 5,000 venues in 120 countries on the World Wellness Map by Sept 18-19, 2021!
This would not be possible without the outstanding contribution of 100+ volunteers around the globe (WWW Ambassadors and Coordinators) who infuse their network with hope and enthusiasm, encourage venues to be innovative, groups to instill a culture of wellness, and cities to be more aligned with the United Nations’ SDGs and #WellnessForAll #WellnessByAll #WorldWellnessWeekend
By promoting 5 Pillars of Wellness, WWW is encouraging everyone NOT to wait for a “post Covid new normal”, but rather to live RIGHT NOW richer and fuller lives with families, friends and wellness buddies. Our 5 Pillars of Wellness are embodied in the Wellness Pledge: Sleep & Creativity, Nutrition & Immunity, Movement & Vitality, Mindfulness & Serenity, Sense of purpose & Solidarity.
