In 2014 the Alcohol Policy Coalition commenced work on an alcohol policy roadmap project, examining the current state of alcohol law and policy in Victoria, and looking at areas for law reform and policy development, with the overall goal of reducing alcohol related harm in the state.
In the first phase of this project, the APC are examining state powers to limit advertising exposure to children and young people, the impact of planning laws on alcohol policy, the ways in which planning laws can be improved to reduce alcohol related harm and national model laws on secondary supply.
As part of this project, we’re producing a series of podcasts on the three current focus areas: advertising, planning law and secondary supply.
- Podcast 1: Alcohol marketing and young people: David Jernigan, PhD, Director of The Centre on Alcohol Marketing and Youth, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
- Podcast 2: The role of planning in managing alcohol-related harms: Bonnie Rosen, Principal, Symplan
- Podcast 3: Secondary supply laws in Victoria – what’s next?: Geoff Munro, National Policy Manager, Australian Drug Foundation.
Over the coming weeks, we’re going to be posting these podcasts on the APC website. We invite you to listen and share your thoughts or reactions to the discussion.
This project is an APC project, with support from the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation.
