Case studies

Case studies are success stories and activities which can give you an idea of what is being done, mostly by the civil society, serving as inspiring concrete examples for improving the environmental conditions of children.

This section contains case studies of what NGOs, other civil society groups and governments have achieved to improve children’s environmental health.

The European Child Safety Alliance has produced a good practice guide entitled "Child Safety Good Practice Guide: Good investments in unintentional child injury prevention and safety promotion", which contains 14 case studies (Austria, Denmark, France, Greece, Iceland, Portugal, Scotland, United Kingdom and Waltes) and a definition "good practice" in child safety.
