9. Change the laws

Laws play a major role in underage drinking.

Action needs to be directed to:

  • Increasing the purchase age from 18 to 20 years
  • Increasing the price of alcohol, so that it is no longer 'pocket money' prices
  • Restricting alcohol advertising and sponsorship

Encourage your local politicians to introduce laws which would protect young people. Visit the Price and Promotion and Alcohol Advertising and Sponsorship sections for more information,

Also visit Mobilising Others to create a community of action.
