This week we talk to second year drama student Gevorg Simonyan about the Hugs Not Drugs initiative he's started at Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet along with the help and support of Mr Maier.

Hugs Not Drugs' first event was to give out hugs to the community of IEGS recently. Gevorg explains the idea behind the event and his plans for the future.

To get in touch and find out more, please visit the Union Of Young Europeans' Facebook Page.

Gevorg invites "everyone to get involved and post ideas and suggestions of things that can be done at school" on the FB page.

Enjoy the show!
