The HBSC research team in the French-speaking area of Belgium (Wallonia) are hosting a webinar to discuss the results of the 2017/18 HBSC survey; the latest of 11 HBSC surveys carried out in the region.

The results of the 2017/18 survey in Belgium have been published in a series of topic-focused reports, available on the SIPES website. The webinar on the 24th of November will see members of the HBSC research team appear alongside a variety of specialists to discuss the findings in-depth and answer questions from webinar participants.
