Join drive for empowerment, care, and wellbeing – November 15-21, 2021
Self-Care Week Europe is a pledge-driven campaign to engage professionals, decision makers, citizens, and communities to embrace, integrate, and implement self-care in practice.
We encourage all to join, contribute, and share – you can use all our materials from our toolkit.
Or simply join our virtual/visual/digital #goselfcare event we started in 2020:
#GoSelfCare – how?
The “rules” are simple: go for a run or walk, take picture (selfie or landscape; photography skills not really needed) and share it by mail firstname.lastname@example.org or post this via your own favourite SoMe twitter/instagram/LinkedIn – using #GoSelfCare. Using #selfcareweek might be a good idea too?
Whether you prefer walking, running, riding a bike (or even swimming), you’re taking a step to show practical self-care connects people – even when we’re not able to meet. #GoSelfCare has already had participants in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, Scotland, England- and the US(!)- and you’re welcome too!
If you’d like participate, write us at email@example.com or link/connect to our LinkedIn, Twitter, or Instagram. Or simply share #goselfcare. And enjoy your self-care, while you’re helping create awareness and connections.

Self-Care Week Europe – who shares?
The campaign week combines local initiatives with digital presence, and political dialogue with practical advice. And gives a joint platform for a wide variety of professionals passionate about a truly personalized health effort, a sustainable model of care, and a stronger health care system in the future.
In addition to SCiE core partners we are joining hands with other initiatives, organizations, networks, and projects; We’ll be trying to have 2021 have all of the participants from 2020 returning – seen below – returning to share, and contribute. But more will hopefully be joining the week too – do you have tools and initiatives to share? Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We produce and collect a number of digital campaign materials as a joint toolkit to support local initiatives and actions – used in various ways by SCiE partners, collaborators, and network.
Use them in community centers, schools, municipalities, workplaces, SoMe – your choice. We’ll also share a short guide to use social media to showcase these initiatives.
You can also find inspiration from the 20+ strong voices across MEPs and MDs, health professionals and health communicators, researchers and activists in our e-book from November 2018.
