The Filter Europe
Date du début: 23 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 22 sept. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The Health at a Glance: Europe 2014 (European Commission / OECD) states that smoking is the highest avoidable health risk in Europe with 22.8% of EU citizens smoking. There is a strong link between smoking and poverty, with smoking prevalence rates highest in deprived areas of Western Europe such as the South Wales valleys and parts of Eastern Europe. Youth unemployment rates remain high across Europe.The Filter Europe is a project aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of youth workers and disadvantaged young volunteers. The aim will be to equip young volunteers and youth workers with the skills to work with young people to prevent them from smoking in the first place or address their smoking behaviour. By working with their peers and those who work closely with them, we have found that this has the greatest impact on young people. The partners include: ASH Wales in the United Kingdom as lead partner; Asociación Ser Joven in Cantabria, Spain; Jugend:info NÖ in Austria; Fundacja Dobra wola in Poland and Asociatia idei si proiecte pentru tineri activi in Romania.This will be supported by a toolkit, social media portals and a website so that young people are able to access information in the ways they want to.We will produce a good-practice guide and report on the impact of the intervention so as to encourage and inform good practice for those working in the youth field across Europe.
