1) SPRING SCHOOL : The main objective was to provide further education to health professionals in the area of smoking prevention and cessation as the experience had shown that surprisingly little up-to-date knowledge was available in the various organisations within Europe, and this course was the only occasion for that purpose at the European level. The Spring School was a valuable tool in construction effective and concrete networking in the enlarged EU in the area of public health. A total number of 50 participants took part in the programme every year and participation was encouraged from all the 30 countries participating in the EU Public Health Programme. New European-wide initiatives were awaited as a result of information flow and networking.
2) QUIT AND WIN : The Quit and Win – Don`t Start and Win (Quit and Win) Competition was a school, youth and community based smoking cessation and prevention programme that has been carried out annually in different European countries since 1999-2000. The target group was young people aged 14-24 years old. The main objective was to reduce smoking prevalence and consumption in young people.
3) SMOKEFREE CLASS COMPETITION was a school-based primary smoking prevention programme for pupils aged 11 – 14 years. The programme focused on the promotion of strategies focusing on health education. In particular, the programme aimed to: 1. prevent or delay the onset of smoking in adolescents, 2. motivate already smoking pupils to quit, 3. de-normalise smoking and establish non-smoking as the normal behaviour in pupils.
4) SMOKING CESSATION aimed to • Review and disseminate findings from Literature Reviews in Holland and Wales (Welsh review available at www.healthewales.org.uk) ; • Review and disseminate good practice from evaluated projects in Denmark, Holland and Wales in relation to adolescent smoking cessation in a range of settings across the EU ; • Identify the needs of each participating country and agree their objectives, methodology and evaluation processes (with the assistance of the external evaluator) for adolescent smoking cessation ; • Implement a pilot adolescent cessation programme in 12 countries
• Evaluate and report on key findings and make recommendations for future adolescent cessation activity.
