Responsible Party

How to organise a Responsible Party?

Educate students on Responsible Drinking

Communication throughout the year on responsible drinking is crucial to increase the awareness of students on the subject.

Conferences

This method involves contacting the prevention specialists to come and present what responsible drinking consists of. Conferences have a great impact on students because they touch students personally. These conferences need to be organized hand in hand with your school.

Visual communication: (logos, pictures, slogans, videos…)

It is highly recommended to always put a “drink Responsible” message on all visual communication tools (and audiocommunication if available).

Website & Internet

This method is by far the most popular one among students. Also, use your own committee web site or your school intranet to communicate responsible drinking and remember, sometimes it may be useful to use social networking sites such as Facebook as well.
