How to organise a Responsible Party?


What is "Responsible Party" ?

Responsible Party is a pan-European campaign to raise awareness among students about responsible drinking and contribute to the reduction of excessive and inappropriate consumption of alcohol among students.

So far, 38 Responsible Parties have been organized in 17 countries, reaching more than 26 000 European students!

You can have fun and a good time with your friends without exaggerating with alcohol!


Why get involved?

As as student party organizer, you have a special responsibility to ensure all attendees are having a good time without putting themselves and others in danger because of irresponsible alcohol consumption.

  • Consider the wellbeing of students and offer them advice and support at parties to ensure that they have a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • It’s easy to integrate the Responsible Party program in any kind of party. You will receive all necessary information and materials from Pernod Ricard.
  • What you have to do won’t take much of your time as all you have to do is to ensure the campaign is visible, and a little preparation and volunteering as an Ambassador at the party.
  • It is a useful experience as you will be able to apply the simple rules of responsible drinking in the future.


For students to understand the risks of inappropriate consumption and to make an informed decision,
YOU are the best person to talk to them.
A peer, a friend , they know and listen to, and who will give them useful tips instead of giving lessons.
