Alongside the various drugs policies and schemes run in the Member States, the European Action on Drugs will serve as a new tool for everyone in the European Union – whatever their organisation, approach, national policy or attitude towards drugs.
The European Commission plays an important role in this joint effort to reduce drug-related problems in EU society. It is keen to stimulate dialogue so that all stakeholders can share their experiences and help each other in their shared goal of increasing awareness about drugs among young people.
