Cities Changing Diabetes

is a global partnership

programme initiated in

2014 by Novo Nordisk,

University College

London (UCL) and the Steno Diabetes

Centre in Copenhagen, in response

to the increase in urban rates of Type

2 diabetes. There are now more than

30 cities across the world (including

Leicester and Manchester) that are

engaged in the programme, which

brings together a range of stakeholders

within cities to map the challenge of

Type 2 diabetes in their communities.

Beyond that, the idea is for cities to

share solutions and drive concrete

action to tackle the challenge through

tailored interventions.

In the beginning there were five cities

around the world who were part of the

Cities Changing Diabetes programme.

University College London (UCL)

undertook detailed research within the

cities and identified social and cultural

factors that can potentially affect a

person's risk of developing T2D.

Because urban environments influence

how people live, move and, often what

they eat, tackling the challenge of Type 2

diabetes requires work across sectors and

disciplines - from the NHS to city planners.

Local partners within the different cities

taking part include policymakers and

city authorities, academic institutions,

diabetes and health communities, sports continued over

clubs and civil society organisations.

Leicester was the first UK city to join

the programme and Cities Changing

Diabetes Leicester is a joint working

project that is funded by, and developed

in collaboration by and between, the

Leicester Diabetes Centre (LDC) and

Novo Nordisk. The LDC is working with

a broad range of local partners within the

city to raise awareness of Type 2 diabetes

and to educate and train communities to

deliver Type 2 diabetes prevention and

healthy lifestyle education within the city.

As part of the work undertaken

under the initiative, Leicester City Council

and the professional sports clubs in the

city came together to sign a 'Diabetes

Pledge', demonstrating their commitment

to working in partnership to drive down

Type 2 diabetes in Leicester. This goal

is being achieved by promoting physical

activity and healthy eating within the

communities where the sports clubs

are located and by ensuring their health

and well-being initiatives are accessible,

inclusive and, where possible, tailored, so

as to help deliver prevention programmes

Because urban environments influence how

people live, move and, often what they eat,

tackling the challenge of Type 2 diabetes requires

work across sectors and disciplines
