ABOUT THE PROJECT
Main objectives of the PINS – peer intervention in nightlife settings project:
- to create peers community in order to exchange and share information, knowledge and experience for peer workers and youth work trainers, discuss opportunities for joint projects – proposals, progress and continuation of projects once funding runs out, share opportunities and coordinate international field work on festivals and parties.
- to represent peer work in nightlife settings as important part of youth work in general.
HARM REDUCTION – ‘Harm Reduction’ refers to policies, programmes and practices that aim primarily to reduce the adverse health, social and economic consequences of the use of legal and illegal psychoactive drugs without necessarily reducing drug consumption. Harm reduction benefits people who use drugs, their families and the community.
COMMUNITY – We are building a community for peers who are working in nightlife settingns. Most of the peers are members of one of the harm reduction organizations in Europe and there are several networks connecting orgnizations, but none of them is for peers who are base of every harm reduction organization.
INFORMATION – PINS web page is offering different information and knowledge about drugs, first aid, harm reduction tips, manuals, articles, leaflets, good practice and much more. You can find everything in a part called pool of knowledge.
IDEAS – Here you can find new and fresh ideas, on how to improve your peer work. Sharing good practices and ideas is good way to improve performance by replicating successes throughout an organizations. Sharing ideas bulids community.
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
