Drinking among young people and the elderly - Where are we heading, what are the challenges?


Nordic Welfare center is inviting to the seminar i Literatur Huset, Oslo, Norway

In recent years there has been a clear decline in drinking among young people, while older people in many of the Nordic countries are drinking more.

The seminar will explore these trends and potential consequences. Is the decline in youth drinking a universal trend or can we find different developments in different groups? How well are the Nordic welfare states equipped to handle an increase in alcohol related social and health problems among the elderly? 

Warmly welcome to listen to the presentations and discuss drinking among young people and the elderly!
