About euro net
euro net is a European addiction prevention network which, by working on specific projects, aims to develop European cooperation in addiction prevention. Within the framework of the network, knowledge and experience are exchanged between locally, nationally and regionally active institutions and organisations within the European context.
Through its projects, euro net is particularly developing the use of peer education in addiction prevention. However, the network does not restrict itself to this single methodological approach. Other prevention concepts and strategies are also picked up on and developed further provided that they are currently valid and innovative, and appear suitable for a field of addiction prevention.
The projects are developed jointly and then implemented locally. The developed Guidelines are implemented and secured for long-term use by means of the euro net products. The organisational structure of the network ensures an effective transfer of expertise from the European to the local and regional level.
