Drink Tank

Unpacking the alcohol poll

Australia’s most comprehensive alcohol poll was launched in Melbourne last month, shedding light on what we drink and think.

If you missed the launch, or couldn’t make it to Melbourne on the day, Drink Tank has you covered.

Watch as Herald Sun Health Editor Grant McArthur, consumer behaviour expert Dr Paul Harrison, Triple J Hack reporter Joanna Lauder and FARE’s own Caterina Giorgi unpack the 2015 findings and discuss Australia’s complex relationship with alcohol.

What is ‘responsible drinking’?

What is the alcohol industry’s responsibility for the harms it creates?

How does the alcohol industry target children through advertising?

And what’s driving the shift in Australians attitudes to alcohol in 2015?

Drink Tank aims to generate meaningful commentary and debate about alcohol policy, and to provide a platform for all members of the Australian community to share their views and concerns.

Our goal is for the Drink Tank community to engage in robust discussion about alcohol, highlighting a broad spectrum of views and voices, and ultimately to raise the profile of alcohol as an issue of national importance.
