Young people are active within organisations that take action on environment and health issues. These organisations such as student associations, large and small NGOs and community groups, have youth participation embedded within their structures. Many activities are youth inspired and youth led. Including young people within the environment and health process brings ideas and experience to the health process and allows the voice of young people to be heard.
The booklet “Promoting the Participation of Young People in the European Environment and Health Process” highlights practical examples of meaningful participation of young people in the European Environment and Health Process. The 26 projects referred to in the booklet are presented in detail below. The projects have been implemented by young people in various European countries, and are only a very small part of what young people are currently doing all across Europe. It is open to further additions.
The text of the projects is presented as-sent by the contributors.
