Master Plan for Peaceful Coexistence and Security Improvement in Schools and their Environments.

The Ministry of Interior launch in 2007 a preventive tool to reduce and combat young people drug use, considering the concern detected by the decrease in the ages of beginning in drug use and the increase in the drug use in school surroundings.

The experience gained, as a result of the successive quarterly and annual evaluations, has improved the Master Plan method with a new approach since 2013. This preventive work has reinforced the participation of the educational community (students, parents and teachers) with law enforcement forces, the National Police and the Guardia Civil.

The cost-benefit analysis shows great results taking into account the resources invested, without any specific added cost outside the public budgets already planned for security. This Spanish public project can be replicated in another European Union Member State, establishing cross section channels of cooperation between different stakeholders to fight young people drug use.

 

The project was launched in 2007 and is still being applied today, improved from the original Plan.
