Challenge 1.2: Education is key

True to the motto ‘You can't teach an old dog new tricks’ it is necessary to start with awareness raising activities in primary schools and integrate it better in vocational educational training.

For example, Slovenia successfully teaches children in kindergartens about the basics of chemical safety. Strategies to train young people during vocational educational training (VET) to be aware of the risks originating from carcinogenic agents and to behave accordingly need to be developed and implemented.
