Iceland began ‘upstream’ prevention initiatives in the mid 1990s and to date they have seen massive reductions in the use of cannabis, alcohol and tobacco amongst youth – results not seen anywhere else in the world. What are the key elements of their sustained success that could boost upstream prevention efforts in Canada?
Dr. Kristjansson is part of a team in Reyjkavik that has created and implemented one of the most systematic, multisectoral, and effective programs in the world. Dr. Krisjansson will address both the ongoing research project and the details of program implementation. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Alfgeir Kristjansson to Canada.
An expert panel and audience dialogue will follow the presentation.
