SAVE THE DATE, AVMSD: What about our kids?

By EASL EU Public Affairs November 15,2016

What about our kids?

The Audiovisual Media Services Directive offers a once in a decade opportunity to protect children from commercial communications on alcohol and unhealthy foods.
On 1 December 2016, join experts from a wide range of backgrounds to discuss the effects of advertising on children’s behaviours, tools to reduce child exposure to commercial communications for unhealthy food and alcohol and the effectiveness of self-regulatory schemes.

Information on the event, including the preliminary programme, can be found on the website.

We very much look forward to your presence and participation.

Sincerely Yours,
European Alcohol Policy Alliance (Eurocare)
