As part of the Healthy Boost Project in Cherepovets, activities are being implemented to improve the mechanism of cross-sectoral cooperation in the implementation of the city's 0-5-30 Project: an active single city Internet platform (Health Portal 0-5-30) is being created to combine information, reference, educational resources/services on public health promotion.

Currently, in accordance with the 0-5-30 concept (0 (no) bad habits, 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, 30-30 minutes of physical activity a day), work is ongoing to fill the information sections of the site - information bank (webinars, articles, statistics, etc.), interactive services (tests, health calculators, etc.), navigation (events calendar, health groups, sports facilities, etc.).

During the workshop the Cherepovets Health Portal was demonstrated, issues of improving the website in terms of usability and quality of content were discussed, suggestions for development and completion of the project were made. The event also raised the issue of healthy urban planning in the city of Cherepovets, which fits with the 0-5-30 concept, making it more comprehensive.

The workshop concluded with a demonstration of how virtual reality can be used to promote public health (VR programs "Brain Gymnastics" and "Healthy Basket").
