Fifth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health

The Fifth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, organized by WHO/Europe and hosted by Italy, is the next milestone in the European environment and health process, now in its twentieth year. Focused on protecting children's health in a changing environment, the Conference will drive Europe's agenda on emerging environmental health challenges for the years to come.

The European Commission has been closely involved in the organisation of the Conference and supports youth involvement to ensure youth participation in the environment and health decision-making process. The European Commission will also organise in collaboration with WHO/HEAL/Italy side events aiming at giving visibility to youth work and engagement in the field of environment and health policy. If you would like to know more and discuss with us on youth involvement please join us in the youth health blog
