What’s the problem with vaping?

Project overview

There is an increasing feeling amongst young people that vaping is cool and glamorous and can’t be as bad as smoking, so it surely, must be ok to try?

Recent reports highlight this rapidly increasing problem and our local knowledge from young people, schools and youth organisations reflects this.

Using research from University of Southampton which reveals the dangers in assuming vaping is a more healthy habit than cigarette smoking, we want to co-create with young people resources highlighting the negative consequences of vaping, providing materials for schools, youth groups and independent use.
