The meeting served as an opportunity for EEHYC and National Youth Platforms to set a foundation for a strong cooperation and explore options for further EEHYC development. During this meeting strategies for greater engagement in the WHO EEH process as well as new project proposals for further involvement in the Protocol on Water and Health, the PEP ( the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme ) and HIC (Health and Climate Change) programs were developed.
Based on these main objectives, the EEHYC meeting was structured so as to ensure:
1. Collaboration between national youth networks and EEHYC and establishment
of a more efficient and effective working structure.
2. A critical evaluation of successes and challenges.
3. Greater involvement in the WHO EEH programs (Protocol on Water and
Health, The PEP and HIC)
4. That EEHYC and its partners provide a meaningful input into the preparations
of the Sixth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in Europe.
The meeting was hosted by the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health in Bonn, Germany, and was supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
