Investigating chemicals in your school - toolkit

This information sheet was developed for the following reasons:

  • To help young people find out more on what chemicals exist in their everyday surroundings (homes and schools), where information might be found on the health effects from producers and others and the availability of alternative products.
  • To provide a forum for young people from various networks and schools around Europe to share their views on ways to increase their participation in policy-making and on a specific environmental and health concern, namely, chemicals in daily life.
  • To facilitate discussion between young people and European decision-makers (MEPs, WHO representatives, government officials) and provide concrete recommendations on forthcoming policy developments.
