First I have been in Hyvinkää at the youth event, which was very interesting. I will have to write more about it later. Also about the exquisit guided tour that we got there! But now i am here for the informal council of ministers for employment and social affaires.

Proactive responses to globalisation, technological development and demographic change are key challenges for EU Member States. The aim of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union is to find ways to meet these challenges by developing working life and refocusing employment, social and health policies. They are shared future challenges for all these sectors and therefore a horizontal approach is required. During the informal meeting of the ministers responsible for employment, social affairs and health we will discuss the theme from three different angles in parallel ministerial workshops: I. Higher productivity by developing the quality of working life II. How can working careers be prolonged during the lifecycle by social policy III. How to promote health in the world of work. Lets see if the ministers find interesting conclusions!
