Short description:
Active - sobriety, friendship and peace is an European youth organization gathering 25 000 young people who have decided to live sober. It regards excessive alcohol consumption as an obstacle for the development of individuals and society, and seeks the improvement of the living quality of individuals in different societies by encouraging abstainment from drinking. Active has more than 500 youth groups and offers a safe and alcohol free environment where children of addicts can find safety and friendship. Active also works politically- at the national and integovernmental levels- by lobbying European institutions to recognise and support youth organisations which discourage peer pressure.
