We would like to take UKNSCC delegates on a secret undercover mission using Operation Smoke Storm. This is an online, interactive secret-agent role play which has the power to create a lifesaving shift in young people’s attitudes towards smoking and the tobacco industry, for a lifetime without smoking. Delegates will be able to trial the first of Operation Smoke Storm’s three 50 minute sessions, giving them firsthand experience of the power of this interactive resource which moves its audience beyond a state of passive listening to one of enthusiastic participation.
1. Introduction (10 minutes)
2. Operation Smoke Storm resource (50 minutes)
3. Feedback and discussion on other tools on the market (10 minutes)
