The ProjectGrundtvig Learning Partnership

THINK BEFORE DRINK aims at fostering awareness for responsible alcohol consumption in order to reduce risky behaviours that may affect health & social relationships. The target groups we will focus on are adults and youngsters, especially disadvantaged individuals particularly affected by the current economic crisis (early school leavers, basic qualifications, unemployed) & all those concerned with improvements in our communities.
We will make adults aware of the boundary between use/abuse by showing cultural habits regarding alcohol consumption. Learn from each other good/bad things & the way each country face alcohol abuse problem.
We will face the problem in 2 approaches:
 
1. Theoretical background: Elaborate a socio-cultural study of the situation in each country (social habits, laws, uses, properties, effects), analysis of health scientific studies, using different methods (i.e. surveys, interviews) addressed to different agents to know positive/negative aspects of alcohol consumption (youth/social workers, health institutions, residents, beer/wine producers, etc).
 
2. Practical background: design practical tools using non formal education methods, to foster a real change of behavior. We will put these activities into practice to check effectiveness. Examples: group dynamics, workshops, debates, meetings with psychologists, alcoholics, health institutions, etc. These activities can be used by other European organizations to prevent alcohol abuse too. Also, we will practice some responsible alcohol consumption activities like wine tasting. Results will be published in different ways for higher impact: guidebook (online/paper), flyers, website, blog, facebook, etc, & presented to our local communities in seminars, workshops, exhibition…

logo-swedenGefle Ölsellskap is established year 2000 with its mainly aim to develop a selected beer drinking.
We meet once a month to examine different chosen beers from small breweries to spread the knowledge of good beer.
The members show a spectrum of both age and occupation, a cross section of people in our city. Members with background in education, politics, business, sporting interests and working life with a mutual interest of socializing and helping each other to new networks both in Sweden and abroad. Now is the time to learn more on a wider arena. By an application to EU we want to share our interest with partners in Europe. By learning of old drinking habits and habits of today, alcohol legislation, and access to different beer breweries we want to contribute to more selected beer drinking and alcohol prevention both among adults and as good examples for young people in order to improve and encourage awareness in drinking habits.
