Take the Active Option for respiratory health

healthy lungs for life

Our new theme for the global Healthy Lungs for Life campaign 'Take the Active Option' will be launched during the ERS International Congress, raising awareness of the importance of activity for healthy lungs to healthcare professionals, scientists, primary care, patients, policy makers and the public.

We are promoting this theme through a full range of events, projects and promotional activities and we invite you to join us and ‪‎Take The Active Option for better respiratory health.

At Congress you can learn more about the benefits of physical activity with the Healthy Lungs for Life sessions in the programme. Type 'Healthy Lungs for Life' into the 'Tag' search bar to find sessions within this track.

We are also holding a Lung Cycle Challenge in the Poster Area where you can compete to pump up a pair of lungs with pedal power and Assembly 10: Infections are challenging all delegates to walk 10,000 steps a day at Congress. You can also visit our public lung testing events in Dam Square and Beursplein to see how we are reaching people in the city with key messages from the campaign.

Take the 10,000 steps challenge!
