We are delighted to invite you to a thought-provoking webinar on the important role of cities in pushing for more just and effective Drug Policies. The webinar is hosted by Correlation-European Harm Reduction Network, the City of Amsterdam, the International Drug Policy Consortium, and Transform Drug Policy Foundation.

About the Webinar

Cities are increasingly recognised as crucial drivers of innovation in drug policy. As interest in a new approach to deliver more just and effective drug policies grows, cities face significant challenges in finding room to design new drug policies and in their implementation, due to political resistance, public opposition, and the rise of populist 'zero tolerance' and ‘tough on drugs’ politics across Europe.

This webinar will address the important role of cities in forming progressive drug policies and discuss how cities can collaborate and push for positive change in cooperation with international partners and institutions.
