“This Saturday 18 May 2019, Luxembourg launched the second edition of the “Alcohol? Less is better!” action week, which takes place every two years.
This prevention campaign against the over-consumption of alcohol, running from 18 to 26 May 2019, is unique in that it primarily builds on voluntary, citizen engagement and self-help.
The action week takes place in close cooperation with the German Centre for Addiction Issues (DHS), which has been initiating the “Action Week on Alcohol” in Germany every two years since 2009. This year, besides Germany and Luxembourg, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Austria will also be participating.
The main theme of the Action Week 2019 is: “No alcohol in the workplace!” Alcohol is often present in the workplace, for instance at lunch or during special events. This consumption in the workplace can impact the health of workers (traffic accidents, machine operation, driving machinery, etc.) and reduce their work performance.”
