Empowering youth by promoting safety and health at work for a better future


Make your voice heard! This is the slogan of the European Year of Youth, an initiative of the European Commission aimed at encouraging young people to become active citizens and actors of positive change.

The European Year of Youth goes hand in hand with NextGenerationEU, which reopens perspectives for young people, including quality jobs and education and training opportunities for the Europe of the future.

EU-OSHA is making a long-term contribution to empowering youth by mainstreaming safety and health in vocational education and training. Through the OSHVET project, our pan-European partners and national ambassadors provide resources about occupational safety and health at regional and national levels.
