Declaration on Young People and Alcohol, 2001
The European Declaration on Young People and Alcohol was adopted by the participants in the WHO European Ministerial Conference on Young People and Alcohol in Stockholm in 2001.
The Declaration call on all Member States, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations and other interested parties to advocate for and invest in the health and wellbeing of young people, in order to ensure that they enjoy a good quality of life and a vibrant future in terms of work, leisure, family and community life.
The European Charter on Alcohol, adopted by Member States in 1995, sets out the guiding principles and goals for promoting and protecting the health and wellbeing of all people in the Region. This Declaration aims to protect children and young people from the pressures to drink and reduce the harm done to them directly or indirectly by alcohol. The Declaration reaffirms the five principles of the European Charter on Alcohol.
