BUBA (BEETLE) - A clear mind free of alcohol


This project shows that Croatian experts, and civil society as well, can be globally successful and have the potential to conduct their own efforts at the level of international standards of the scientific community. BUBA program was nominated for a U.S. National Award for the best partnership between one U.S. university campus and local communities.

BUBA project attracts interest of other cities across Croatia and the region of ex Yugoslavia as well. Thus, this project could represent an export product, if efficient means for its launching were provided. This is the only project of this kind ever conducted in Croatia and has been scientifically confirmed to influence or change attitudes and thus behavior related to alcohol, but indirectly also to tobacco.

The program is evaluated scientifically and has resulted with young people, who have completed training for a period of three years (one hour per week in 3 months), consuming significantly less alcohol than the control group. The effectiveness of the program was confirmed in Croatia and the United States.

Finally, it is one of the few projects that is scientifically evaluated in accordance with the highest international criteria, and results of this project were published in two international specialized scientific journals.
