A three-tier program to effectively strengthen alcohol advertising self-regulation at EU-28 level.
Leading producers from the beer, wine and spirits sectors today launched a comprehensive initiative to strengthen independent advertising self-regulatory schemes for alcohol beverage marketing by establishing a set of common, rigorous standards for their marketingcommunications throughout the European Union.
For the first time ever, the Responsible Marketing Pact creates common standards supported by major beer, wine and spirits producers (AB InBev, Bacardi, Brown-Forman, Carlsberg, Diageo, Heineken, Pernod Ricard and SABMiller) throughout the EU.
- Prevent minors from inadvertently seeing alcohol beverage marketingcommunications on social media ;- Set a common adult demographic standard for alcohol beverage marketing communications across all media, thereby limiting undue exposure of minors to drinks ads. (70/30 baseline standard) ; - Prohibit any alcohol beverage marketing communications that might be particularly attractive to minors by ensuring that the content of ads appeals primarily to adults.
As an EAHF (European Alcohol and Health Forum) commitment, the Responsible Marketing Pact has to comply with the monitoring and reporting requirements of the EAHF. It will be subject to continuous oversight by the European Commission and WFA will present a first progress report on implementation and compliance with the agreed common standards by June 2013.

Replicate existent US programs (1) “ASK, LISTEN AND LEARN” by Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (FAAR) and (2) “CLASSROOM CHAMPIONS” by Classroom Champions fitted to the Caribbean culture that will help fight underage drinking by teaching kids life skills. Ask, Listen, Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don’t Mix is the most widely distributed, long-standing program of its kind in the US, empowering kids to say “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and say “NO” to underage drinking. This helps kids realize the importance of goal setting, and the benefits of being knowledgeable on the effects of what they put in their growing body.Classroom Champions connects top performing athletes with students in high-need schools. Classroom Champions use video lessons and live video chat to motivate students to recognize their potential, set goals and dream big, while educating them in the practical use of communications technology.
The program is adapted for 4 countries: Grenada, St. Lucia, Dominica, and Haiti to: (i) pair an Olympian or National Team athlete as consistent role models to engage kids in underserved schools; (ii) teach students life skills and allow kids and teachers to make lessons relevant in their own lives; (iii) provide the students with mental, emotional and physical tools they need as they strive to accomplish the goals they learn to set themselves; and (iv) through the inclusion of the Ask, Listen, Learn content into the appropriate Classroom Champions lesson plans. Goal is to create a relationship between the athletes and the students.
- Adapting the program in four different countries- Convincing and working together with the Ministries of Health and - Education in each country- Training teachers and recruiting mentors (athletes)- The limited technological capabilities of the schools
1) The Pilot Program will have a duration of four months: •Month 1: Athlete creates video lesson•Month 2: Goal Setting video lesson•Month 3: Students practice and do activities around their athlete’s lesson•Month 4: Students create a video or work for their athlete on what they have learned2) Throughout the program: in-person visits and videos/chats3) Training is provided to teachers in schools within the four countries. 4) A Student Survey is used both in advance of our initiative to provide a benchmark (pre) and upon its completion to assess our strengths, weaknesses and impact (post).
- We measure the improvements of the Program in key areas for students’ future success including: goal setting ability and perseverance, school engagement, digital literacy, and interpersonal skills; areas that lead to increased academic performance. - In teachers we measure job performance, job engagement, and digital literacy. In mentors we measure communication skills, leadership skills, and digital literacy. - Leveraging and strengthening our relationships with key stakeholders within these key Caribbean countries within Pernod Ricard Americas Travel Retail region.- Raising awareness with other key stakeholders about our efforts to reduce alcohol related-harm through the implementation of the 5 CEO Global Industry Commitments.- Work together with local community and authorities fighting against underage drinking with multi-sectorial approach (NGO, Government and private sector).- Pernod Ricard Americas Travel Retail is working together with the industry leveraging a great relationship with Diageo and Heineken as signatories of the 5 CEO Global Industry Commitments.- Given the program is ongoing a Teacher Survey will be conducted upon completion of our initiative to help us understand what the teachers found most useful and how we might improve the program in the future.

Even if at first glance it doesn't sound exciting, "Responsible Party" is fun, real fun!"The whole project is built on peer-to-peer approach. Members of local ESN associations are trained by Pernod Ricard in delivering responsible drinking messages and how to engage with other students and discuss alcohol-related issues. The events are organized by local ESN associations where the trained individuals become the ambassadors (aka. Party Squad), with a sole task of spreading awareness and delivering key messages of project to the participants. The idea behind this approach is, that students are more likely to discuss alcohol related issues in informal atmosphere and with equals.
"Responsible Party" is a pan-European awareness campaign created by Pernod Ricard as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy. ”Responsible Party” is also the Pernod Ricard commitment towards European Alcohol and Health Forum. The project is designed to help student associations organize parties & other events in safe environment with focus of raising awareness of responsible & moderate consumption of alcohol. The main project partner of Pernod Ricard is Erasmus Student Network AISBL (ESN), the largest university student organisation in Europe, present in 37 countries of Europe with over 500 local associations.
The main challenges of the project implementation are:
The program is composed of Universal Toolkit containing prevention and information tools (BAC estimators, condoms, info flyers) as well as promotion tools (branded sunglasses, USB sticks, balloons, posters, hashtag boards, T-shirts for the Party Squad) which are used to engage the participants and motivate them to get involved the project objectives, either through discussion or various small activities such as games, quizzes etc. There is also a Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/ResponsibleParty/?fref=ts) and a Promotional RP video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDe4i4lWWDw). The key messages of the program are:
Since 2010 until end of 2015, the project has affected more than 250 000 students in 31 countries across Europe.
