Welcome to the HEPCOM Learning Platform

The HEPCOM platform has been developed to serve local authorities, local communities and professional practitioners, working with prevention of obesity and overweight among children and young people - for example, through healthy eating and physical activity. It can also be used by students at universities to learn about the process and methodology of health promotion projects.

The tools in the HEPCOM platform are organized in a systematic way by applying the management cycle, which illustrates an ideal working process for the planning, development, implementation and evaluation of projects, activities or interventions. By clicking on the different phases in the management cycle, you will find tools that are related to each specific phase which can assist and inspire you to work in a more structured and informed way.


The HEPCOM platform gathers tools that are developed and tested within, and from, a range of diverse health projects supported by EU funding. They are therefore sufficiently flexible to be applied within different European countries or provide inspiration to create specific local solutions based on the experiences of others. Even though some of the tools may not necessarily be recent, they are nevertheless still considered useful and relevant by the partner institutions behind HEPCOM.

The platform contains good practice examples to inspire you in using the tools. National resources will also be included in the HEPCOM platform. If you click on the national section, each flag will lead you to relevant material which has been developed by your national ministries, agencies or other institutions in your country.
For your information, on this website a number in an parenthesis represents the number of times the tool has been downloaded.
