Celebrate life with free wellness activities during the 8th World Wellness Weekend


20-22 September 2024

This September World Wellness Weekend, launched in 2017, returns for its 8th edition. It’s a celebration of health and togetherness that reaches all four corners of the globe, from the sunrise opening ceremony on the island of Fiji, to the closing ceremony on the island of Maui, where two times Grammy award winner Peter Kater will close the event with a piano performance and sound bath.

Across all five continents, a total of nearly 9,000 wellness, sports, tourism and hospitality professionals will open their doors to the public, offering immersive wellness activities, classes and workshops - all for free.

New global partnerships will help to raise global awareness for the joy of wellness with a bang, such as World Cleanup Day, Art Impact for Health & SDGs (WHO), Endurance Zone, WithU, Nutrition Beyond Borders (NSF), Myndstream, European Week of Sports, International Week of Happiness at Work...

It’s the biggest World Wellness Weekend yet. This year, 150+ countries will come together to provide totally free, totally inclusive wellness events for anyone to enjoy - all thanks to the passion and support of its 240 volunteering Ambassadors and Wellness Leaders, promoting the UNITED NATIONS’ objective: “Good Health and Wellbeing for All”.

They’re advocates of World Wellness Weekend’s mission to promote healthier bodies and stronger minds through fun and inclusive activities. It’s Wellness O’clock! 

World Wellness Weekend’s smart-map in 18 languages helps people find fun, free and inclusive group sessions indoors, as well as recreational outdoor activities offered by fitness clubs, yoga studios, spas, salons, hot springs, hotels, resorts and wellness centers:

Across the world, you can find incredible wellness activities. Here are a few highlights:

  • In Spain, over 1,000 venues are participating. An epic event this year will be the creation of the ‘Wellness Park’ in Marbella. With non-stop yoga & pilates, dance classes, reiki and massages, golf baptisms, as well as talks and a fashion show on sustainable clothing, the Wellness Park will be a celebration of all things wellness!

  • In the UK, 144 establishments are opening their doors, including all David Lloyd Clubs, award-winning Carden Park, Lucknam Park, Galgorm, Banya n°1, AIRE Ancient baths, Salsateca… Offering fun, free, inclusive and purposeful activities to enrich people's lives and bring them together.

  • In Argentina, 226 properties are preparing events nationwide. From free classes on yoga, Zumba, and stretching, to talks and demonstrations on conscious eating, mindfulness and skin care. In Buenos Aires, participants will be encouraged to donate non-perishable food to the Help the Children's Foundation, whereas the Wellness Beats programme in Don Torcuato will call for a 1k family walk for the community, raising awareness of the importance of blood donation to save lives.

  • Canada lines up 107 venues, especially in Winnipeg (most active city in 2023) with yoga, fitness, qi gong and meditation in spas and fitness clubs. There are even activities at the Canadian Museum of Human Rights! One powerful example is Beauty Barn Spa offering a complimentary “Awakening to Better Beauty” spa day for cancer patients and their families. 

World Wellness Weekend is a global non-profit event aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal: Good Health & Well-being For All. With the belief that Social Prescribing is a true catalyst to promote healthy lifestyle choices, it offers a location, an activity,  and a community to citizens of the world to come together and practice wellness. 

“WWW aims to provide immersive and transformative wellness experiences. Our mission is to help millions of people become the best version of themselves, and also socialize in meaningful ways with their local communities so that we can live better together.” - Jean-Guy de Gabriac, founder of World Wellness Weekend.
