Take Action

Make submissions on draft legislation or policy

Be an advocate for more effective controls on alcohol advertising (including labelling) and sponsorship.

Make a submission – Look out for any opportunities to have a say on the development or review of any policies and bylaws that might help reduce exposure to alcohol advertising and marketing.


Think both local and national

Policies and laws to address alcohol advertising may be at the local level:

  • Policies prohibiting alcohol advertising on Council properties/venues, public transport and at any events sponsored by Council. 

Policies and laws to address alcohol advertising may be at the national level:

  • Laws, standards and policies on alcohol advertising, sponsorship, labelling, etc.

If there is an opportunity to submit on draft legislation, we will post a submission template here.


Advocate for change

For more information and tips on making submissions and other advocacy action see Mobilising Others.

Encourage your local council to develop policies and bylaws – If your local council hasn’t developed any policies or bylaws to control alcohol marketing, or existing bylaws aren’t working, you can encourage them to take action. They could prohibit alcohol advertising at all Council facilities.
