PROJECT SUMMARY: Project’s idea occurred and discussion about smoking and its unhealthy consequences started during youth exchange / contact making event Localizer which took place in Kopaniec, Poland in July, 2018. One of our organisation’s members had a discussion during “smoke” break with company of smokers. Together they generated an idea of the project, when part of smoking participants would quit smoking during preparation and at least implementation period of the project and share their experiences / diaries / insights – start storytelling about this new life. This is how Stop Smoking – Start Storytelling was born.
