The project focuses on building capacity in public administration and public services in national and local governments and their institutions, especially to facilitate more consistent implementation of strategies in the field of youth risk behaviour prevention (preparation of guidelines and recommendations), increasing safety and health standards in nightlife, raising awareness among discotheque and night club owners regarding their responsibility in protecting the health of young people, and finally education and training of staff working in discotheques and night clubs to enable them to help prevent different harms. The project also focuses on the reduction of risk and harm in nightlife environments, rising sensibility of media, advertisers and politically relevant actors (e.g. policy and decision makers) with guidelines and recommendations for dealing with those problems in a systematic way (preparation, adoption and implementation of effective legislation and actions).
Club Health - Healthy and Safer Nightlife of Youth
Nightlife plays a major role in modern life, with much socialising and other forms of networking taking place in bars and nightclubs. Further, globalisation has influenced a large group of young people to become so-called party nomads, and become a particularly important risk group in modern society in many ways. There have been large increases in nightlife problems in the last decade almost all over the world such as getting drunk and using illicit drugs. Risks include sexual ones, violence, noise, anti-social behaviour, driving under the influence of alcohol and illicit drugs, and suicide.
