about those individual and societal factors that contribute to the likelihood of adolescent substance use.
The Planet Youth guidebook will support our partners and community teams in implementing the Icelandic Prevention model in their region. A shorter version of the guide is publicly available for download.
The 7th Planet Youth Conference has Come-to-a-close. The Conference was held in Guanajuato Mexico from November 30th to December 3rd 2021.
During the past 10 years more than 100 peer reviewed articles have been published by our scientists on various matters related to public health, prevention, youth and on the Icelandic model.
We provide step-by-step milestone guidelines for cities and local communities to minimize drug use among
children and adolescents. The model has proven easily transferable and can be applied in any community.
We offer three ways to deliver this model to you.
