Purpose

We gather to bring leading policy makers and civil society experts together to raise awareness about children of households with alcohol problems.

We will discuss the children’s situation living in households where adults/parents or caregivers experience alcohol use problems. We will analyse the problem and together with our speakers present solutions. We will explore what can be and what is being done by our partners around the world to raise awareness and help children who experience alcohol problems in their homes.

As always, there will be time for Q&A and open discussion.
