- 27th September 2011, 08:00AM
- The ACC, Concourse Fringe Room 4
Demos and Drinkaware, with support from SABMiller, are proud to present this panel event at the Labour Party Conference, which will showcase important new research projects on the causes and consequences of teenage binge drinking. We are delighted to be joined by:
Diana Johnson MP, Shadow Minister for The Home Office
Margaret Curran MP, Shadow Minister for Disability
Jamie Bartlett, Senior Researcher, Demos
Vivienne Evans OBE, Chief Executive, Adfam
Chris Sorek, Chief Executive, Drinkaware
Randeep Ramesh, Social Affairs Editor, The Guardian (Chair)
Recent research by Drinkaware and others suggests that happy, socially confident children are far less prone to excessive alcohol consumption. Meanwile, forthcoming work by Demos, highlights the importance of parenting in early and teenage years in shaping young people’s attitudes to drink and their propensity to binge drink in later years.
With the Alcohol Strategy and Public Health Responsibility Deal II soon to be released, this discussion will address how central the roles of parents and teachers are in tackling binge drinking and how government and industry can help them to respond effectively to the dangers of binge drinking.
