Association Prevent held the Global Day of Action for third time in Novi Sad and for the first time in Kragujevac. In Novi Sad, the target group were students and in Kragujevac, visitors of the music festival Arsenal. On 26th June, an action was held in front of the student’s dormitory in Novi Sad. A photo booth was particularly popular and spread the campaign logo and messages. In Kragujevac, members of Prevent talked to festival visitors about campaign issues and photographed them with the Support Don’t Punish logo.
In Belgrade, Re Generation organised a Support Don’t Punish film screening. During the event, three films produced by Re Generation and the Rights Reporter Foundation were presented: “Without shift”, “Clubbing and youth health” and “Medical cannabis legalisation in Serbia”. After the screening, a lively multidisciplinary discussion followed, with a wide range of professions in attendance. Throughout the discussion, many questions were raised, such as media attention to psychoactive substances in the region, laws, politics and general discourse about psychoactive substances. In the future, ReGeneration will continue to inform youth and to raise awareness about psychoactive substances, with the particular focus on “designer drugs” and harm reduction.
