ENSP-ECTC Webinar “The road to a Smoke-Free generation”

ENSP is pleased to host the roundtable “The road to a Smoke-Free generation” that will be held on 17 December 2020, from 13:00 to 14:30 CET, as part of the ENSP-ECTC Conference – The Online Edition

Prevalence of tobacco use is still high in Europe, but smoking statistics regarding adolescents and young people is especially worrying. Surveys show that people typically start smoking in the early period of life and keep this behaviour in their adulthood.

Since 2018 ENSP strove to actively involve young people and collaborate with youth organisations to raise awareness and build capacity among youth in Europe regarding smoking prevention and cessation.

The online event “The road to a Smoke-Free generation” will be focused on four main topics: social media and tobacco, the role of youth in ensuring a smoke-free generation, smoke-free campuses and smoking in schools. Thus, the program will consist of four respective presentations from the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids (CTFK), Young Health Organisation International, Universidade da Beira Interior (Portugal) and Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium).

More precisely, this roundtable aims at gathering together young individuals and offering them the chance to directly interact with experts from various tobacco control fields. The event will be split in two sections: the speakers will present their subjects in the first part, followed by the interactive part where participants will be split into 4 break-out rooms and have discussions about each topic.

By the end of this meeting, we wish to gather concrete actions discussed by the participants and implement them in the future ENSP activities. At the same time, we wish to provide participants with new experience and knowledge in order to become future ambassadors in the tobacco control field.
