Youth Drinking in Decline

Krakow, Poland,

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:

  1. Exploring the consistency of declining youth drinking trends within and between countries
  2. Explaining the decline in youth drinking
  3. Relationships between declining youth drinking trends and trends in wider youth behaviour and culture
  4. Implications for public health, public policy and practice of declining youth drinking trends
