Human Resources issues.

• Context:
•This project was set up because big European cities are often not able to manage young
wanderers using drugs cumulating problems of exclusion and immigration. Cities are facing
3 levels of problems related to young wanderers using drugs:
     •Health problems (mental health, HIV, hepatitis etc.),
     •Social (exclusion related to precariousness),
     •Urban safety (antisocial behaviours and violence).
As a public health actor, we are not satisfied with only repressive answers. Different answers
are proposed by different actors but without real briefing.
•The target audience is marginalized youngsters without occupation, either living in the city
or wandering, sometimes accompanied by animals.

 Objectives:
•The Work Platform aims to increase the threshold of health protection, urban
safety and social cohesion among EU Cities. In this way, we will reinforce the
thresholds of competence of the actors, will intensify the possibilities of joint
actions and of public safety, in comparison with the users of drug.

•Final aims: Building a common charter with recommendations and a welcome
guide for young people and local actors adapted to each city
