Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, asked administrations, public services, voluntary organisations and the whole civic society to carry out concrete actions and work in partnership, in order to increase awareness about drugs among young people, and reduce drug-related problems. The EC launched the "European Action on Drugs" as part of the World No Drugs Day. A hundred of people participated in this event, which contributed to receiving the declarations of the first signers. The presence of Nikos Aliagas, French journalist and television host of Greek origin, and Jerzy Owsiak, Polish journalist, events organizer and social campaigner, helped reach a younger audience.
