The European and French Forums for Urban Security are organising, in partnership with the city of Nantes, a European conference called “Excessive alcoholism amongst youths in public spaces: the mobilisation of European cities towards a common strategy”.
This conference will provide an opportunity to review current Harm Reduction practices both nationally & internationally and to examine the future potential for Harm Reduction within the recovery agenda.
International Overdose Awareness Day aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of drug overdose.
This congress focuses on the traditional and contemporary use of drugs in indigenous, mestizo, and urban communities in Mexico and Brazil. Informal and cultural means of control, and their relationship with formal and legal controls, will also be explored.
This event will bring together the perspectives and experiences of researchers, harm reduction advocates, and law enforcement to describe how to bridge the cultural divide between law enforcement, public health agencies, and community health providers.
The conference aims to increase the professionalisation of urban drug policies, improvement the quality of cooperation between sectors, the transfer of knowledge between European cities and the promotion and dissemination of urban drug policies based on scientific evidence.
