Youth alcohol consumption is declining across most high-income nations, often alongside concurrent decreases in drug use and smoking. Researchers are increasingly focusing on the nature and underlying reasons for this decline.
The Kettil Bruun Society is holding a thematic meeting to discuss the nature of these trends.
The programme will be organised around the following themes:
- Exploring the consistency of declining youth drinking trends within and between countries
- Explaining the decline in youth drinking
- Relationships between declining youth drinking trends and trends in wider youth behaviour and culture
- Implications for public health, public policy and practice of declining youth drinking trends
