Full Text, AbstractThis development work comes from need to study and develop the way to conduct intoxicant education in Mikkeli. Traditionally it has been done during so called Intoxicant Tunnel (Päihdeputki) -events. Those events have received critic from researchers (see Salasuo, Soikkeli, Rantala 2005; Lähteenmaa 2005). They discuss, that in those events the role of a learner is too passive and the events have quite strong manipulative aspects. In the spring 2006 we organised the intoxicant education event for pupils in 6th class in a new way. Our multi-professional team consisted of professionals of Mikkeli town specialized in intoxicant issues and two teachers and two groups of students of Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences. Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences had the main organisational responsibility. The main aim was to develop the event toward a more participatory and dialogical way. The implementation of the event was based on workshop working. The theoretical framework was laid by social pedagogy. In this report I describe the process of the project. In addition to that, I analyse the feedback of the clients of the intoxicant education event. The clients were the pupils in the 6th class and their teachers. All together there were 417 feedback forms, which I analysed with Exel-programme. The event as a whole succeeded quite well for the first time. In general the pupils and their teachers were satisfied for the event, but also many aspects still need development. In the future the event could be something in between Intoxicant Tunnel and work shop based working. The event should include demonstration materials as well as forum for interactive dialog of pupils` own themes. The drama education has worked well both in tunnel work and in workshopworking. The possibilities for good collaborative learning are very high in this kind of co-operation between polytechnic and professionals. In the future the co-operation has to be stronger already at the planning stage.
