Youth first! That’s the slogan for an 8 September event organised by 5 EU agencies, including EU-OSHA, and the European Parliament Employment Committee.

William Cockburn, EU-OSHA Interim Executive Director, together with the other Agency directors discussed youth policy with MEPs and experts from EU institutions and Member States. They explored employment conditions, skills development and mobility, and mental health and the impact of COVID-19, in line with the EU Year of Youth 2022 that is focused on a greener, more inclusive and digital future.

The event, hosted by Dragos Pislaru, chair of the EP Employment Committee was live web streamed.
