It seeks to create a culture of prevention by promoting the benefits of smoke free environments, de-normalizing smoking and facilitating efforts for prevention and cessation.

Adolescents and their families are approached in key educational and entertainment settings and with their participation the project develops, implements and evaluates innovative, evidence based and easily transferable interventions for the prevention of smoking and the enhancement of smoking cessation efforts.
