Celebrations provide a change from everyday life and can give you good memories. However, the youth celebration with intoxication may lead to unpleasant consequences. Alcohol use will exacerbate accidents and poisoning and cause health hazards. Sexual complications, drug experiments, traffic offences and suicides are often caused by alcohol.
The 16th “Selvin päin kesään” (Meeting summer with a sober head) campaign challenges young people to have a sober life, as well as parents and adults working with young people to offer young people safe alternatives for celebration.”
A campaign run by Friends of Temperance is in Finnish, Swedish and Estonian.
