Responsible Party


“They (students) liked it (the program)and appreciated! Some of them realized the ideas are right! Some of them asked to do it more often! I was really surprised how much people liked it. In the end, they even asked for posters J”

ESN ISC CTU, Prague (Czech Republic), 1.12.2010 


“Keep moving on!”

ESN Riga (Latvia), 11.12.2010


"The students reacted with curiosity and interest. Some of them were extremely surprised to see that their breathalyzer tested was positive and understood they would not be able to drive"

ESN Palermo (Italy), 21/05/2011


"(The students were) surprised and excited about it, most of them thought it was funny as they smiled a lot while we handed out gadgets. I only saw 2 drunk students out of more 200 that evening, so I think the responsible drinking message got through."

ESN University of Oslo (Norway), 29.01.2011


"The campain is very nice, it doesn’t say you should abstain from drinking but rather from dinking too much. Generaly the people were happy and it was very civil. Nobody drank excessively and the condomes were used ;).
We partied responsibly".

Fabian Bircher, EPFL, Lausanne
