Why O3AW22?

The aim of this event is to raise awareness of the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids in our diet, being the key to our evolution, our physical and mental health and the future development of mankind.

Among others we seek to point the finger at one of humanity’s biggest current problems: the continuous pollution and destruction of the ecology and marine life. Hence the destruction of our main natural source of long chain Omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA.

An awareness week full of facts, scientific evidence and shared personal experience from some of the top experts in Omega-3

During the O3AW22 we will present to you, on a daily base, at least one new video interview recorded with an international leading top scientist in the field of Omega-3. For your convenience, we will cut these interviews into short 10-15 min sessions with specific headings, easy to follow and to find again in the future whenever you need to look them up.
