PREVENTION IS POSSIBLE
Workshop
Reykjavik - March 2019

Drug prevention is possible

Preventing children and adolescents from the 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.

The Icelandic model

From highest to lowest in substance use – 15/16 year old students
in Iceland using the Icelandic model.

Our patron

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, President of Iceland from 1996-2016, is the patron of Planet Youth.

Get involved

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.
