In addition, the lessons include functional exercises.


  • To promote the participation of young people.
  • To increase knowledge about alcohol and cannabis.
  • To encourage young people to express their opinions.
  • To encourage reflection on attitudes and phenomena related to alcohol and cannabis.

Trained young people are involved in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the activities. During the training, the young people learn group guidance, presentation and advocacy skills. They receive a certificate of participation in the activities.
