Responsible Party

How to organise a Responsible Party?

What are you supposed to do?

  • The sole aim of the program is to promote responsible drinking and help students organize safe parties. It does not imply any commercial relationship. It is not a sponsorship program; free alcohol products will not be offered.
  • The student association is the organiser of the party and takes care of the implementation of the campaign.
  • You will be provided with all necessary information, training and materials (prevention tools and gadgets).
  • As the organizer, you are accountable for a responsible alcohol service during the party. If you are not directly in charge of the sales, then you should talk to bar staff so that they are informed about the program and thus pay more attention to serve alcohol responsibly
  • “Don’t drink and drive” is one of the main messages of the campaign. If there is no public transportation to the venue, try to organize transfers (buses, taxis etc.) If you see someone drunk, don’t allow him to drive after the party.
