“Side by Side for the Black Sea” is among the eight projects selected by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in cooperation with other international organisations involved in the Health & Environment policy process as a Best Practice Concept on youth and children’s involvement in the field of Environment and Health. The project will be presented to the European Health and Environment Ministerial Board and Task Force at their meetings in 2012, and will be published on the websites of UNEP and partnering international organisations. The project will be used:
a) At the political level to showcase what can be done between UNEP and other environment and health stakeholders to support, promote and implement environment and health projects
b) Help encourage member states in the environment and health process to duplicate similar exercise by their own initiative
c) Support WHO’s work on youth engagement.
