Unity is the alcohol/drugs harm reduction project in the Dutch party scene.
The Story of Unity began about 20 years ago in Amsterdam. In 1996 Jellinek Prevention started a project in collaboration with clubbers from the dance scene with the aim of minimizing damage caused by alcohol and / or drug use among clubbers.
Now there are six regions where Unity is active throughout the Netherlands. For generations, the volunteers and staff put their heart and soul into the mission objectives and goals of Unity.
These volunteers are trained by the staff of Unity to peer educators. Unity aims to reduce the risks from the use of recreational drugs as much as possible. To have the biggest impact possible we work with peer educators that are a reliable source of information for their peers.
All peer educators affect the policies and activities of Unity. Participation by the peers is key. The peer educators are ultimately the experts within their own subculture. The Unity volunteers are all young, have different interests, backgrounds, levels of education and musical preferences but all love going out/clubbing and the lifestyle that goes with it.
The peer educators provide information and advice on the use of alcohol and other recreational drugs at the time visitors to dance events are in the process of using. On the spot! Besides harm reduction, Unity is also committed to positive contribute to the image of the clubbing/electronic dance music scene. Finally, Unity is also committed in creating the safest possible environment for the visitors.
Jellinek Prevention, Context, Novadic-Kentron, Victas, Brijder and IrisZorg unite their efforts around this mission.
