The first 1000 days of life – EuroHealthNet video

This video from EuroHealthNet explores the effects of social, emotional, and physical environments during the first three years of life on long-term health and wellbeing. It looks at the actions needed to create solid foundations for later life.

The first 1000 days of life are extraordinary. It is when the foundations of the rest of our lives are created. The brain develops more than at any other time. It is when our surroundings affect us the most. Those days shape the adults we become, our future health and wellbeing, and our ability to raise happy and healthy future generations. In those first 1000 days and beyond, not all children have the same opportunities to grow and thrive.

The video is also available in Spanish, French, Polish, Greek, German, Italian and Portuguese on EuroHealthNet’s YouTube channel.
