Primary school students from IlidĹľa Municipality participated in the workshop entitled Pedagogy of Experience and Environment. During the workshop, through educational-entertaining teambuilding games, the students were introduced to psychoactive substances. Addiction factors were discussed, as well as peer influence and in that manner the primary school students were introduced to addiction as one of the greatest youth issues.
The workshop was held by representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, representatives of the XY Association and of the SHL at the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA as a part of the JUPPO Project â€“ expert training and structural networking as the key actors in preventing addiction in BiH.
