INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP:

THE UBIQUITY OF ALCOHOL

Wednesday 20th September 2017

ADDRESSING MARKETING, AVAILABILITY & INDUSTRY INFLUENCE:

Alcohol is no ordinary commodity but its presence and marketing seem ubiquitous. In this workshop, we will explore how policymakers, public health experts and researchers are responding to industry efforts to expand the presence and normality of alcohol in our lives. With inputs from leading international researchers and advocates we will explore alcohol marketing and availability in a digital age; industry manoeuvres, and potential countermeasures
