"Placing health and well-being at the core of national, regional, urban, and organisational development strategies is our mission"

Gabriel Messmer
President of Evaleo


Evaleo is an international non-profit organisation with the goal to inspire and enable people to adopt an active, healthy, and fulfilling lifestyle. To achieve this, we carry out a mission of education, development, and active promotion.

We are a worldwide alliance of experts, professionals, and partners, federated around the common vision of sustainable health and well-being for everyone, and acting together through the implementation of programmes and interventions aimed at generating positive impacts.

Through our programmes, accompaniment services, shared resources, tools, best practices, certification schemes, and events, we act as a real interface between the needs identified among populations and the stakeholders, and contribute to the implementation of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Life and development are at the heart of our work, and in everything we do, we seek to maintain cohesion between:
