Effective Environmental Strategies for the Prevention of Alcohol Abuse among Adolescents in Europe

Objective

The consumption of alcohol among young people in Europe is rising the last years. Several studies indicate that one quarter to one third of all the students has been drinking alcohol during the last month. Also the problematic drinking is a growing issue. Especially in the age group 12 until 14 year the use of alcohol has increased the last decade. The proposed multilevel research project aims to study the different possible effective strategies for the prevention of alcohol abuse among adolescents in different European countries. It will therefore analyse existing environmental strategies of public and private actors at different governance levels and confront these with outcomes of a study to identify and analyse risk factors that influence the initiation of alcohol use among young people in Europe. The study will build upon a unique dataset from a previous survey of self reported delinquency among 74,000 young people in 33 countries, realised with active involvement of the same research consortium. The (intermediate) outcomes of the study will be largely disseminated through experts and stakeholders conferences in different European regions and a web-based prevention policy guidance book
