The purpose of the POWER NET was to investigate behavioural, environmental and social determinants of obesity through a variety of research projects and to examine the impact of interventions for the promotion of healthy weights at multiple ecological levels (individual, community, organizational, policy, environmental).

A number of themes emerged through our work. Please see our project schematic for an overview, or select from the list below for more information about POWER projects related to a given theme.
