How to reach Young People

ENETOSH Workshop At A+A

As a follow-up event to the joint EU-OSHA – ENETOSH Workshop in Bilbao on musculoskeletal health for children and young workers in March 2019, the 23rd ENETOSH Network Meeting and Workshop: “How to reach young people?” took place on 7th November 2019 at at A+A 36th International Congress for Occupational Safety and Health in Düsseldorf, Germany.
As some of the members of ENETOSH have been working for more than 15 years on the issue of "How to reach young people" with the topic of occupational safety and health, the ENETOSH held this workshop at A+A specifically on this topic.
Main focus was the "body image" of young people and its impact on their mental and physical health. The workshop took a look at the scientific perspective, but also at practical experiences and examples of good practice.
More than 60 experts attended the workshop and listened to excellent presentations. It was an honor to listen to the great presentation of Ilda Figueiredo as a representative of the Portuguese Ministry of Education. On the education side, the workshop was also attended by a representative of the European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE), Sarah Lyons, and a representative of the District National Education Directorate from Istanbul, Ayla Besir.

To present the main theoretical background via a dialogue between Helena Lewis-Smith, UK, and Peter Paulus, Germany, went more than well. Peter Paulus reminded later in the workshop to take more care for the process of implementation of research and good practice. We may focus on this aspect during the next workshop in Dresden dedicated to physical and mental health for young people.
A first transfer from our minds to our bodies was done by Sigrid Zörgiebel-Schaefer, Germany - Japan. Some participants may have been astonished that we translated our “body talk” directly into a true “body experience”. The process may have been a strong learning experience for most of the participants.
Afterwards a firework of Good practice was displayed: Experiental learning by master students getting involved into two types of work site visits (Mitchel Rosen, US); Interactive tools to address bachelor students with the basics of risk assessment (Lucie Kocurkova, Czech Republic); Small children as researchers on prevention (Heike Brüggemann-Prieshoff and Michael Hauke, Germany); School pupils who build their own school (Kathi Musialek, Austria).
