The Planet Youth guidebook supports 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.
DRUG PREVENTION IS POSSIBLE
Ultimately preventing children and adolescents from initiation of drug use. In developing our approach, we relied on global research findings, as well as our own local observations about those individual and societal factors that contribute to the likelihood of adolescent substance use.
Every year Planet Youth, colleagues and partners alike, including specialists from all over the world gather to discuss everything from prevention work and society to the Planet Youth method. Take a look at our upcoming events!
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.
