Final Conference Localize It! in Portugal
On 4-5 September the final conference of the EU project Localize It took place in Figueira da Foz, Portugal with 30 prevention experts/project partners from eleven European countries. In two and a half years the project partners accompanied and advised 22 municipalities in the development and implementation of a local alcohol strategy - Figueira da Foz is one of them.
At the final conference, the partners reported on their experiences, evaluation results and a manual developed within the framework of the project was presented. Furthermore, possibilities for the sustainable anchoring of the Local Alcohol Strategy as well as for the further dissemination of the approach to other European municipalities were collected. The manual describes in detail the process of the Local Alcohol Strategy, gives practical advice and contains field reports from participating municipalities, from which other municipalities and professionals can benefit. The manual will be available electronically in nine languages by the end of September.
European Expert Meeting on 13-14 March 2018
During a European Expert Meeting in Muenster, Germany, on 13-14 March 2018, good practices for alcohol prevention for young people in seven defined settings will be discussed.
Based on this, selected measures will feed into a catalogue from which 22 municipalities in partner countries will choose measures to set up individual action plans. Further, the concept of the local alcohol strategy will be introduced and partners will present their ways of cooperating with the municipalities as well as intermediate results.
We are expecting prevention experts and representatives of politics and municipalities from all EU member states.
