Municipality of Dongen participates in IkPas

I pass in the Municipality of Dongen

The Municipality of Dongen supports the principles of the National Prevention Agreement, which encourages healthy behaviour. Health in this is much more than the absence of disease; it is the balance between different areas of life in which resilience plays an important role. The emphasis is on resilience, self-direction and the adaptability of people and not on limitations or illness. Through the Local Prevention Agreement, we work in Dongen, together with a large number of partners, on the health of our residents.

A healthy lifestyle contributes to good health and well-being. A healthy lifestyle prevents diseases, people remain self-reliant and they can continue to participate. The figures show that substance use (alcohol use and smoking) is a point of attention for the 55+ target group in Dongen. That is why the IkPas campaign is being used to temporarily put alcohol consumption on a break.

In the month of May 2022, the entire municipality of Dongen will take up the challenge to put alcohol consumption on pause for 30 days. IkPas is taking on a challenge with yourself. You don't drink alcohol for a month to see what it does to you. You become more aware of the choice you can make whether or not to drink, you break through your entrenched patterns and alcohol is no longer a matter of course. But those are not the only effects of participating with IkPas. Many participants also experience physical benefits. For example, 62% feels physically fitter, 55% sleeps better and 32% loses weight. Sounds good right? Join us!
