Youth RISE will host a Youth Pre-Conference on 31 March - 2 April, immediately prior to IHRA’s 22nd Annual Harm Reduction Conference in Beirut, Lebanon. The event will bring together young harm reduction activists from around the world for 3 days of skills building workshops and creative discussion, and provides participants the opportunity to network, connect and share experiences and skills with their peers. The aim of the event is to prepare and empower the young participants to be effective advocates on the issues that affect them, and increase their participation at the IHRA conference and beyond. 

Y-Peer (The Youth Peer Education Network) is also partnering in the event, and will facilitate sessions on sexual and reproductive health and rights for young people.

The pre-conference is open to young people between the ages of 16-29 who are affected by drug policy, use drugs, and/or work in the drugs field.
