This event aims at exploring the new and emerging health challenges that adolescents and young adults may face within the European context, also looking at the consequences that such challenges might bring about later in life. Socioeconomic, cultural, educational and other factors affecting young people’s health and health behaviors will examined, with a specific focus on issues and areas of concern and relative, potential policy solutions. We also want to discuss to what extent policies are tackling the key issues identified by scholars so far.
