THINK: Before You Buy Under 18s
A public awareness campaign aimed at encouraging adults to think about the consequences of supplying alcohol to minors.
The Wellington Liquor Liaison Group is a multi agency and industry group focused on reducing alcohol related harm. The group comprises Wellington Police, the Hospitality Association of New Zealand, Wellington City Council’s Liquor Licensing division, the Alcohol Advisory Council of New Zealand, Beer Wines and Spirits Association of New Zealand, Regional Public Health and ACC.
The THINK campaign reminds adults – including parents – and youth in their late teens to think about their kids, their mates and the consequences before supplying minors with alcohol. The campaign is supported by a range of advertising and point of sale material including counter mats, posters, flyers and stickers.
