Why are young people drinking less alcohol? Webinar: Thursday 8th of April, 3-4pm
Apr 2, 2021
Since the mid-2000s, there has been increasing evidence that less young people are drinking alcohol. This trend has been seen in many high income countries, with the declines being very significant. In 2001, 30% of young people aged between 14-17 reported drinking in a risky manner, falling to 9% in 2019. In this webinar, Associate Professor Michael Livingston will present “Youth drinking declines: what have we learned?”. The presentation will provide an overview of the trend in declining drinking, along with an overview of the range of theories explaining the decline.
