Promoting the realization of associations’ projects
The “Espace Culture” is a 1500 square meters specific cultural complex , composed of 15 people, engaged in the cultural policy of the university. It is based in the core of the campus and opened freely to everyone.

With approximately 5 million tobacco-related deaths annually, tobacco smoking is the leading cause of preventable premature mortality in the world. A lot of effort was made to reduce this problem, but a lot of initiatives are still require to increase the number of people decide to stop smoking. The health national system provides an smoking cessation centers to assist smokers, but few know this service.
The Smoking Cessation Center of Catania University, engaged with international clinical research on tobacco dependence, decide to carry out a new strategy to involve the smokers, giving them a specific information and assistance about smoking cessation activities trough media campaign also with new instruments as social networks and forums.
The results of this new strategy is an increment of 55% quit attempts compared to period without press activities.
Each smoking cessation centre can adopt this strategy to improve its results and promote health.
Health and Culture
At the University of Manchester, The Manchester Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery has pioneered new methods of engaging with the public through their Health and Culture programme . The development of a partnership with Manchester Schools Hospital and Home Teaching Service, CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) and Central Manchester Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust enabled the delivery of a series of collaborative activities and programmes that led to practical benefits for all involved.
Objectives and Goals
Chemistry is evil, malicious, nasty and malevolent?
When the word chemistry comes to our minds, automatically we make negative associations as pollution, wastes or toxicity. We believe that this vision is outdated, in modern societies, as the benefits of the chemistry surpass the potential risks that entails. Chemistry can be displayed in an enjoyable and good-humoured way, and it can transmit positive aspects.
