In the first year of the Strong Kidneys Europe initiative the Corona virus pandemic means that we recommend virtual activities such as webinars about kidneys, their importance, function and preventive measures, as well as reporting on radio and television.
If public events are possible again, an open day at a treatment or research centre is also very suitable for prevention work. Additionally, information booths and lectures, public consultation hours, measurements of risk factors, guided tours through the building, interactive experiments for adults and children, puzzles and competitions have proven successful here. Activities with schoolchildren and sporting events are also popular. A celebrity ambassador for your national activities would significantly boost visibility.
Actions for medical professionals are also important and useful to inform about kidney health and the importance of targeted screenings.
Feel free to use this slide show for inspiration.
