• In most European countries the knowledge regarding measures taken in self-help and self-protection is very poor.
  • An effective and proactive education programme should be provided across all levels of the population.
  • Young people require a special approach, as they need to be addressed in a different manner than adults.
  • It is important and useful to raise young people’s awareness towards possible dangers in everyday life.
  • In doing so, they will learn very fast how to protect themselves against potential threats.
  • Most accidents can be avoided by prevention through effective education and training.

Our Objectives Are

  • To make young people’s environment safer.
  • To raise their awareness towards possible dangers in everyday life.

  • Evaluation of the current educational infrastructure in regards to special topics for the target audience will be accomplished.
  • Risk analysis of the main hazards and threats in daily life will be conducted to identify the main potential threats.
  • Existing systems for education and advanced training for young people will be further developed. New training material will be created.
