Austrian Dialogue Week on Alcohol

“The initiative “Austrian Dialogue Week on Alcohol” – similar to the “Action or Dialogue Weeks of alcohol” carried out in Germany for many years – aims to inform about alcohol and to encourage discussions about thinking about one’s own alcohol consumption: How much alcohol do I drink? Where is the limit?”

“From May 20 to May 26, 2019, events will take place throughout Austria. In doing so, we want to address alcohol and the dangers of it without taboos and bring it to a level of conversation.
