About

This webinar aims to discuss the importance of addressing alcogenic environments to reduce alcohol consumption in young people, present evidence, and share examples of how civil society associations are addressing this phenomenon.

Living in an alcogenic environment increases young people’s frequency of alcohol consumption and the risk of experiencing harm related to alcohol consumption. Multi-pronged approaches that recognize the need for coordinated actions tackling the acceptability, availability, and affordability driving alcohol consumption have shown to be most effective in addressing the multidimensional connotation of alcogenic environments. For this, a comprehensive health promotion approach engaging all decision-makers, advocates, and policy-makers is critical.

The target audience of this webinar includes policy-makers, government officials and civil servants, civil society, researchers, local authorities, and the public.

The event is co-organized by the Less Alcohol Unit of the Department of Health Promotion at the World Health Organization and Movendi International.
