Within the framework of the initiated international cooperation, the Institute for Integrated Prevention prepared a short video showing the integrated prevention program of Archipelago of Treasures, supervised by IPZIN. We encourage to familiarize with this 5-minute material. It includes opinions of foreigners about the program Archipelago of Treasures (e.g. Indonesia, India, Zambia, United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland) participating in the International Workshops held in English devoted to preventive activities of IPZIN.

This year marks the 10 years of the presence of the Archipelago of Treasures in the school environment. For this reason, the annual meeting was an opportunity not only to expand own knowledge, but favoured many summaries. Of course there was also time for setting new directions and not just for the beginning school year 2016/2017.





"Love and Sexuality - How to Lead the Youth Nowadays on the Way to a Happy Marriage and Family" - it was the title of the international workshops that we conducted as part of a series of lectures on the occasion of World Youth Day in Cracow. A several hours' meeting, conducted entirely in English, was held on Tuesday, July 26 at the Campus of AGH in Cracow.

The workshop was attended by over 100 people from 20 countries and all 6 continents. Participants valued the professionalism of the presented studies and the workshop of our work with the youth.




About the Guidebook of Effective Prevention of Youth Problems once again we can read in the latest, January issue of "Świat Problemów". This time it is shown as a proposal of strategy based on a bold but very rational vision that can give oversectoral consistency of actions of the state, local governments, schools and all other entities performing tasks in the area of education and prevention. The entire text can be read in the paper magazine.

On October 8, 2015 in Warsaw, at the Office of the Prime Minister was held an interdepartmental meeting devoted to the prevention of youth problems and presentation of the recommendation of the research contained in the Guidebook of Effective Prevention of Youth Problems - publication developed in collaboration of the Centre for Development of Education and the Institute for Integrated Prevention. Szymon Grzelak, Ph.D. gave a lecture entitled The effectiveness and consistency in the management of problem prevention based on "Seven Levers of Effective Prevention" - presentation of conclusions from the above-mentioned research report.

The Guidebook to Effective Prevention of Youth Problems has been developed by a team from the Institute for Integrated Prevention and published in September 2015 by the Centre for the Development of Education (under the ESF project). The publication summarizes the experience of many years of positive work of the authors. In our opinion, it is of strategic importance for the formation of the foundations of a coherent program of action in the area of education and prevention, which are based on scientific research, values and practical experience. The recommendations contained therein should be known to the makers of social, educational and health policy. The Guidebook is written in an understandable language and it forms a hybrid between a scientific report and a practical guide. Guidebook will be sent by ORE to the education departments of all local governments in Poland. The authors shall endeavour to reach other institutions with the publication.
