WHAT we DO:
RAISING AWARNESS ON BINGE DRINKING EFFECTS
REDUCING ALCOHOL RELATED HARM DURING EVENTS
It’s about promoting a balanced lifestyle and empowering young adults to decide for themselves. Responsible Party is a non-branded program that can be activated during any event. It is a label that provides a safer and more responsible environment for young adults.
At every event, we act to ensure people feel good and have fun; providing the relevant information, water and tools so that each individual can make the right choices.
Born from the idea that events are even better if they are enjoyed responsibly, Responsible Party has from the start been the leading pan-European program tackling binge drinking among young adults — and still is.
Collaboration with Lausanne
It all started as a collaboration between Pernod Ricard and the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne. The school was working on a compilation of best practices on responsible consumption during student events.
Partnership with ESN
Created in partnership with Erasmus Student Network, an EU-funded non-profit
Responsible Party is today a unique program which actively fights against the
misuse of alcohol.
THE WAY WE DO IT

young adults to raise awareness amongst their peers. In the end, party-goers are the only ones to decide for themselves. So everyone can actively engineer memorable events. Today, it’s about 15 000 party-goers who took care of you and your parties.
