Adolescence: building solid foundations for lifelong flourishing. Entre Nous No.80, 2014





Adolescence is a remarkable period of development and change in the life-course of boys and girls, filled with vulnerabilities and risk, as well as incredible opportunities and potential. Developed to launch in conjunction with the WHO Regional Office for Europe’s new child and adolescent health strategy, “Investing in children: The European child and adolescent health strategy 2015-20,” the 80th issue of Entre Nous focuses on the health and well-being of adolescents and young people in Europe. Articles and experiences from the Region demonstrate that investment in adolescents and youth has far reaching benefits not only on individual behaviour and lifestyle, but also on the stability and prosperity of communities as a whole.
