After the kickoff in Luxembourg the project partners started with their local research and tasks.
In this first phase, one will mainly focus on collecting good practices and consulting municipalities about a possible cooperation within the project “Localize It!”
When each country has selected two municipalities, they will conduct a Rapid Assessment and Response (RAR) in each municipality. The objective of this research is to gain an understanding of the needs and priorities regarding underage and heavy episodic drinking in the municipality. This will result in a choice of setting in which four measures will be implemented and evaluated.
Both the good practice research and the RAR are scheduled to be ready by the end of 2017 and the results will be exchanged on the EU conference of March 2018.
