Where: Male', Maldives
When: January 28 - February 3, 2013

The aim of this event is to gather a youth group with an expert on drugs, a recovering addict and other important figures of the community in an aspiration to initiate dialogue and to eliminate taboo related to this topic. This is an initiative by the Trustees of the Maldives who have attended the Training for trusteeship, 2012 in Sri Lanka which was an event held by Weeramantary International Center for Peace Education and Research in support of The World Future Council, UNESCO and some other research institutes and organizations. These Trustees are part of a bigger youth movement, Dhi Youth Movement which advocates for youth empowerment. The trustees are experienced members who have received training from various National and international programs, summits and conferences all over the world, and have closely worked with various UN offices established in Male', and most importantly with the NGOs and individuals in the recovering and current community of drug addicts. This 7 day event would be, as suggested, a conversation about drugs. It is essentially a workshop model focused on 30 different individuals. The program would consist of expert lectures, group discussions, dialogue with a representative from the recovering community, and training these individuals to carry forward what they would learn from the workshop to others in their community. This workshop is designed in such a way that the participants would be gathering for a learning experience through fun activities, group work and interactive discussions.
