Events, European Action on Drugs (EAD)
The European Action on Drugs (EAD) provides European civil society with a platform to:
- increase awareness and commitment as regards drugs and the risks related to drug abuse
- to promote dialogue and exchanges of best practice.
EAD works around a simple idea: a huge number of people and organisations have a role to play in disseminating information and raising awareness about the risks of drugs abuse, particularly among young people.
The Commission is proposing that anyone who:
- carries formal responsibility of some kind;
- has decision-making powers, or acts in an economic, social or representative capacity;
should make a commitment on a specific action that he/she will undertake.
