MEAS [Mature Enjoyment of Alcohol in Society] 2005 Conference: Alcohol and the Community.
MEAS [Mature Enjoyment of Alcohol in Society Ltd]
Alcohol and the community was the theme of the conference hosted by MEAS in Cork in October 2005. It was the third in a series of annual MEAS conferences concerning the topic alcohol and society MEAS 2004 conference focused on Alcohol and Young People while the 2003 MEAS conference addressed the theme of Alcohol and Partnership. One of the conclusions of MEAS 2004 conference was that the problem of underage drinking runs deep and has a range of determinants and that addressing the problem will require a number of lines of action; these lines of action can be taken at Government level, at community level and at family level. Clearly. it is a complex undertaking. MEAS 2005 conference focused on interventions at one of the three levels identified-the community level. Alcohol related harm within our communities presents a challenge for us all; this is especially so as we continue to experience dramatic societal change in Ireland. as well as the erosion of community.
