Investing in policies that work for youth


The voices of young people need to be heard. The first step is to make youth a priority. Starting with the European Year of Youth 2022 – a milestone in building a future that’s greener, more inclusive and digital, the importance of youth is amplified on International Youth Day (12 August).

Adding its own perspective to youth issues, EU-OSHA has taken a life course approach to preventing musculoskeletal disorders among children and young people, the future generation of workers. This and other issues will be debated at the European Parliament on 8 September.
