Part 2 of the History of Youth participation in the process of environment and health policymaking

Youth Workshop in Luxembourg, March 2007

Youth workshop brought together near 40 young people from 25 WHO Member States in Luxembourg, in March 2007.

Young people started the process of creating the Youth Friendly CEHAPE (YFC). This document reflects the youth view about CEHAPE document. Young people worked in a small groups and then presented their ideas to others. They agreed that for better work after such productive meeting in Luxembourg they need to launch their own youth health and environment network.

The European Youth Health and Environment Network (EYHEN) is experienced in children and young people's environment and health issues. It consists of young people between the ages of 16 and 23 from all over Europe. The EYHEN is able to inform the local network of how young people participate in relevant decision making processes in their own countries. The members of EYHEN are willing to participate, if necessary, in the further development of national plans and the European Plan.
