The Choice is Yours
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Jul 31, 2016
"It's your choice!" is a youth exchange that aims to educate and raise awareness of young people about drug abuse and related social problems. Drug abuse is a recurring and constant problem. It is influenced a lot by the general attitude of the society against drugs. Deeper insights about this problems will be presented and discussed by Estonian National Institute for Health Development speakers (narko.ee). This project should provide young people with a forum where they can discuss about their points of view, talk about their experiences or about what they have heard about drugs from their friends or in their usual environment. All participants will be encouraged to contribute to the discussions.
During the youth exchange, participants will be able to discuss a lot of related social issues. Should soft drugs be legalised? Should mere possession and consumption of drugs be decriminalised? How should people be educated about drugs? How to treat people with serious drug issues and how to prevent young people from experimenting with drugs? All of these questions will be tackled during the programme.
Furthermore, young participants will be encouraged to prepare a small-scale public campaign against drugs. It will be up to their creativity what tools they want to use and what message they want convey. This campaign will then be promoted among their local communities.
The project will also contribute to intercultural learning of the participants, develop their social and interpersonal skills, develop their entrepreneurship, etc.
