EEHYC representatives participated in the discussions and held a workshop for meeting participants. The aim of the workshop was to create the context for the young people to explore how environment and human health are linked in the context of Post-2015 agenda, and discuss possible directions for action under that framework (Air quality and health-, Soil quality and health, Climate change and health, Food security and health and Water quality & availability and health).
Other discussion topics included: priority areas for the development of the future United Nations Environment Programme, longterm strategy on the engagement and involvement of young people in environmental issues, youth engagement in Environment and Health issues, Youth Employment. Greeneconomy and enterprises were also among the topics discussed, alongside human rights and the environment, and other regional opportunities for sustaining active youth participation in sustainable development issues.
