With help of the PINS project Association DrogArt renewed their informative harm reduction mobile application DrogApp. New concept of the application enables easier editing of the content for the organization and easier implementation of the application to be used by other organizations in other languages or also on other fields of working with young people, where part of the youth work is providing different information and knowledge about specific topics, in order to raise awareness and spread knowledge or information about it. It can be also used as a learning tool or educational support, when there’s a need for a youth worker to acces quickly to some specific information (in our case about drug harm reduction, but in other cases also about other relevant topic, not necessarily on the field of health or well-being).
Unity question quizzesAt Unity we work with short 4-5 multiple-choice question quizzes that visitors at the stand can fill in to test their knowledge. We have quizzes for most of the popular drugs like: speed, MDMA, 4-FA, ketamine, cannabis, alcohol, coke, psychedelics, etc.
For the BOOM intervention we prepared info material in a form of info cards. We took the idea from Crew2000, where they use those cards on lanyards. There are many cards each one for different substance or other harm reduction topic. The design for most of them was also made by Crew2000, for BOOM needs we add some new ones (LSD, mental health, Amphetamine, Basic life support). The idea behind was, that people who came to our info stand pick the cards they have interest in and pin them together with a book ring as you can see on the picture. Read more
