Eurocare hosts event on Effective Environmental Strategies to prevent youth drinking , 25 February 2013, Brussels

On 25 February Eurocare hosted the final conference of the EC funded project Effective Environmental Strategies for the Prevention of Alcohol Abuse among Adolescents in Europe (AAA-Prevent).

During this three year project, a team of researchers studied the use of alcohol among European adolescents. The team identified risk factors that influence alcohol use in adolescence and confronted them with different possible effective strategies for the prevention of alcohol abuse among adolescents that had been implemented in different European countries.
