Why attend the CSSDP national conference 2012?  Because you believe in 'Progress not Prisons'.  Because you're concerned about the federal efforts to make the justice system tougher instead of more effective.  Because you're interested in harm reduction and the latest developments in policy and practice.  Because you want to learn more about the impacts of prohibition.  Because you're looking to connect with other young people, activists, researchers, service providers and others who are looking to change drug policies in Canada and around the world.  

Youth and students interested in presenting their research can be a part of the conference in the Student Research Presentation.  Check out the website for more information on how to apply. 

If you are a youth or student that wants to attend the conference but needs help with travel costs, check out the application for travel scholarships on our website.

Each conference CSSDP raises funds to provide travel scholarships for youth and students to attend the conference.  If you can, please consider making a donation to our Sponsor a Student program to help CSSDP provide travel scholarships to young people attending the conference from across the country.  With your help we can bring as many folks as we can to Calgary to help build the drug policy reform movement.
