Building on the successful Climate Schools: Student Programme, Climate Schools Plus will incorporate a parenting component aiming to enable parents to prevent alcohol and cannabis harms among their adolescent children. The parenting component is based on a successful program developed by Dr Ina Koning at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
In phase 1 of the project an Expert Advisory Group will be established to guide the design and development of the Climate Schools Plus Student and Parent Programme and focus testing and end-user consultation will be undertaken. Phase 2 will involve an implementation and effectiveness trial of the Programme. Climate Schools Plus will be the first online integrated student and parent program to prevent alcohol and cannabis harms among adolescents.
