Community Action on Adolescents and injury Risk
European Situation Analysis, Strategy Plan and Community Actions
The Community Action on Adolescents and Injury Risk (AdRisk) project responds to the call for an integrated approach to reduce the injury risk among adolescents. AdRisk defines adolescents as young people aged 15-24.
The project focuses on national policy and strategy development, situation analysis, network development and the provision of tools and good practices. AdRisk refers to the 2006 EC Communication "Actions for a safer Europe" which defines injury and accident prevention as a priority for the Public Health.
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of adolescents aged 15-24 by encouraging the creation of stimulating environments and learning opportunitieswhere they can fully explore and develop their physical, psychological and social skills and competencies, without undue injury risks.
Our vision statement is: "Risk taking is fun: better be safe than sorry!"
