About us


“We have 2 lives, and the second one starts when we realize we have only one. Confucius”

How do we define Wellness?

At World Wellness Weekend we define wellness as a responsible relationship between your body and yourself. Epigenetics shows that the way we live has a great impact on how our genes express themselves. How we sleep, eat, move, relax and socialize, either keeps body and mind in a state of vitality; or creates an imbalance with repercussions on our health. To find out more about how we define wellness, discover our 5 pillars of wellness.


About us

World Wellness Weekend inspires & empowers millions of people around the world. We want to do this through thousands of FUN, free & meaningful wellness activities organized in more than 140 countries!


Our History

Since 2017, we have encouraged professional wellness leaders in hospitality, fitness, beauty and tourism across the world to open their doors, and showcase the expertise of their teams (engage their local communities) and raise their profile. 

On September 15-16-17, 2023, from sunrise in Fiji to sunset in Hawaii, let’s offer creative ways to encourage each & everyone to experience wellness and become the best version of themselves: #OnePlanet #WellnessForAll.


Our Aim

World Wellness Weekend (WWW) aims to inspire and empower people to make healthier choices and enjoy an active lifestyle with family & friends. The current health situation around the world reminds us how important it is to have a strong immune system.

Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, SDG 3 is Good Health and Wellbeing for All. In partnership with the United Nations Global Sustainability Index Institute, WWW encourages venues, groups, associations, federations, visitors bureaus and city officials to organize free, fun and creative wellness activities on the 3rd weekend of September. Just before the Equinox, when daytime & night time are equal, as a symbol for Work / Life Harmony.


2,310 venues participated in 2021 in 133 countries.

There is no nobler mission in life than to encourage each & everyone to become the best version of themselves, (physically, mentally and emotionally) - Jean-Guy de Gabriac, founder of World Wellness Weekend
