Location: Portorož, Slovenia

Themes: Public Health, Youth Health, Youth Engagement, Youth Work

Working language: English

In order to empower youth activists that have the mission to improve the health of the population, we need to strengthen their knowledge and skills, which are best developed at an early age. Youth (health) organizations and organizations for youth health play a key role in accessing young people and empowering them through the development of their competencies.

By introducing healthy policies, youth organizations can ensure a healthy environment, safe and secure spaces and encourage the innovative spirit of young people.

The activity is part of the YHO Annual Work plan supported by European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe. 

The partner participation is supported by Erasmus+ of the European Union trough Movit
