The Postsecondary Education Partnership—Alcohol Harms (PEP-AH) and the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) are pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 International Summer Leadership Academy for Alcohol Harm Prevention competition.
Four ambassadors — one from each PEP-AH region (Western, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic) — have been selected to participate in the event that will take place at the University of Ljubljana’s Faculty of Health Science in Slovenia, from June 16 to 22, 2019.
The four individuals are:
University of Calgary, Calgary, Alta.
Bishop’s University, Sherbrooke, Que.
Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S.
University of Guelph, Guelph, Ont.
Cassandra, Alex, Marilyn and Madi will join 22 other students from 11 additional countries for six days in expert-designed and delivered courses, conferences and workshops intended to help reduce alcohol-related harms on campuses.
Before their departure for the Leadership Academy, they will plan with their institution a project or activity linked to an alcohol-related issue or problem identified on their campus. When they return from the Academy, they will use what they learned there to help them implement the project or activity.
Each of PEP-AH’s over 40 member institutions could select one candidate’s application for consideration for the competition. The PEP-AH National Committee reviewed the applications and selected one individual to represent each region.
The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) and the Postsecondary Education Partnership—Alcohol Harms (PEP-AH) are offering students the opportunity to take part in the seven day international Summer Leadership Academy for Alcohol Harm Prevention.

The purpose of a regional symposium is to allow students to get to work with the proposed PEP-AH alcohol harm reduction framework and to foster debate on the initiatives that students consider to be essential and the most promising.
