WHD2020 – #UseHeart to get involved!

With World Heart Day just a week away, we wanted to remind you about some of the ways you can engage and mobilise your communities. You will find all these and more on our Get Involved page.

  • Develop your own dynamic Use Heart content – to show the world what we can all do to prevent CVD, whether that’s giving up smoking, eating healthily, informing patients and more. For ideas, messages and tools, download the campaign playbook
  • Download and use our printable and shareable resources, available in many languages for you to promote WHD to your members and networks
  • Create your own poster and share how you #UseHeart on your networks – and encourage your followers to do the same
  • Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – and share how you, your colleagues and members #UseHeart on #WorldHeartDay
  • Promote your events on our website and help to light up our digital heart – there’s just a short form to fill in here
  • Help us to light up the world red on 29th September by asking a well-known and loved landmark in your city or community to illuminate or project UseHeart – and add it to the Light Up Our Heart page
  • And coming up – The World’s Most Urgent Heart To Heart debate series featuring experts across disciplines to give their insights into triggers and barriers to behaviour change. You will soon be able to register for the first debate taking place on 29 September!

We wish you a healthy, inspiring and fun World Heart Day!
