Pre-Conference Sunday 24/9

Sunday 24 September programme! For registration go to the registration page

The Pre-Conference will be dedicated to some leisure time in the morning, with walks through the historic places of Porto where you always wanted to be. After lunch, early afternoon, there will be a session focused on the Portuguese health system evolution, which will precede a program of visits at health units nearby the conference premises. Beside those visits, we will have also the opportunity to know in loco the reality of the drug users in the streets of Porto, in the context of a broader debate about the successfull Portuguese strategy to counteract drug abuse. 
In the late afternoon, we are all invited to participate in a sunset debate hosted by the MEP Marisa Matias, with the outdoor gardens as background. It will be a unique opportunity to ask all you wanted to know about public participation in European democracies and what are the actual threats. After we will have time to enjoy a buffett dinner at the outdoor with time to network and relax.
