3rd European Alcohol Policy Youth Conference (EAPYC)


12-16 May 2016 | Bled, Slovenia

The idea of the Conference is to bring together up to 100 youth workers/leaders from all around Europe to commonly plan the next stages of youth mobilization on the field of alcohol in Europe.
After very successful conferences in Slovenia in 2012 and Turkey in 2014, the Alcohol Policy Youth Network (APYN) is happy to announce that the 3rd European Alcohol Policy Youth Conference (EAPYC) will come back home to Bled, Slovenia between 12th and 16th May 2016. IDEA AND AIMS The 3rd EAPYC, which will be also a concluding event of the European Commission funded project Let it hAPYN that has been empowering young people and youth organizations across Europe towards more effective and evidence-based alcohol interventions for the last three years, will focus again on the main three areas of APYN’s work: capacity building, advocacy and youth research on alcohol and youth. This Conference will be a great opportunity for networking and learning from the showcased products that were carried out in the last three years by youth organizations themselves. The idea of the Conference is to bring together up to 100 youth workers/leaders from all around Europe to commonly plan the next stages of youth mobilization on the field of alcohol in Europe. The main 3rd EAPYC goals are to: - present the outcomes of the Let it hAPYN project, - raise interest among young people and youth organisations about prevention and reduction of alcohol related harm and alcohol policy, - empower participants with the necessary skills and capacities in order to effectively work on the field of alcohol, - empower the participants with the necessary tools to engage in advocacy for more comprehensive alcohol policies on the regional, national and international level, - provide necessary tools and training for participants to be able to conduct projects to prevent and reduce alcohol related harm on youth, and - give participants the opportunity to exchange their expertise and good practices with their peers. The Conference is aimed at both young people from across Europe who are beginners on the alcohol topic and the ones who are already actively working in the field. In line with the status of applications, we are going to provide three difficulty levels’ activities (beginners, intermediate, expert), having global well-reputed speakers and facilitators for each of them. Final speakers are going to be announced closer to the event. ELIGIBLE COUNTRIES Since this is a European Commission funded project, only participants from the European Union, EFTA countries, Turkey and APYN member organizations are eligible for the covered accommodation, food and local travel. Other fees apply for other participants who would like to participate and are not from these countries. See the costs breakdown on the right.
