The focus of the workshop was the comparison of integrated approaches and strategies from various countries and regions as well as a practical analysis of existing materials such as curricula, interactive seminar techniques and electronic tools. The aim of the workshop was to establish partnerships which help with the international transfer of existing knowledge and material.

A special characteristic of the workshop came from constantly changing perspective from improving the work conditions of children and adolescents (child labour/youth unemployment) and improving the quality of education by integrating safety and health into schools.

Highlights of the event included: the contribution from Richard Rinehart, US Agency for International Development, regarding ways of preparing students for the workplace with curricula that emphasize the importance of informal learning; the contribution from Peter Paulus, University of Lüneburg, on the concept of good healthy schools in Germany; and the contribution from Mikko Nykänen, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, which described the principle of a successful implementation of best-practice models.

An exchange platform for the various offerings and requirements of the participants and their institutes was used to form five self-organised international working groups and other bilateral partnerships. More information about the working group “Whole School Approach” you can find at (menu on the left) and in the LinkedIn group.

In the days before the joint workshop, the 2nd ENETOSH Steering Committee Meeting and the 14th ENETOSH Network Meeting took place. We would like to thank the ITC-ILO and its wonderful team for their hospitality.
