World Wellness Weekend To Take Place in September


World Wellness Weekend, an event with a mission of highlighting the importance of wellness and encouraging people to adopt healthier lifestyles, will return September 18 to 19. Founder Jean-Guy de Gabriac says his goal for the two-day celebration is to tap into more than 100 volunteers from around the world and to feature 5,000 venues in 120 countries.

According to de Gabriac, any wellness, fitness, beauty, hospitality, or tourism-related business can participate for free by registering details of their planned WWW events at, a site that is available in 16 languages to encourage global involvement. The only participation requirement is that businesses must offer their community one free and fun 60-minute wellness activity during the weekend. The activity should inspire and empower.
