A stakeholder workshop organized by Fondation EURACTIV to explore issues surrounding the protection of young people in the policy debate.
Participants were asked to contribute to a range of ideas designed not to answer all the questions relating to youth and health policies, but to provide a blueprint for how such issues can be addressed in the future. Such issues include:
Can an age be defined when a young person is no longer “vulnerable”?
What is the best long-term approach: regulation and protection or education and empowerment?
How can industry play a role through self- regulation? What else can industry do?
What is the responsibility of industry with regard to advertising and marketing practices?
What is their role in empowering young people to healthy lifestyles?
