How do you think a Tobacco-Free Generation could be achieved?
With the damaging health consequences of smoking now well understood, many organisations and governments are now working towards the goal of a Tobacco-Free Generation, i.e. a generation of young people who are completely free from the addictive and toxic habit of smoking. Decades ago this may have been thought unachievable but successes in reducing smoking rates over the past 20 years have put the goal of a Tobacco-Free Generation within reach. At this evening interactive debate event, researchers from the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit at the University of Glasgow will describe some of their latest findings. These will include detailing how more recent policy changes such as the comprehensive ban on smoking in public places have impacted on smoking among our nation’s young people, and research into the use of e-cigarettes by young people in the UK. The audience will have opportunities to pose questions and join the debate as a panel of experts discuss the implications of these findings for the goal of a Tobacco-Free Generation. The discussion will also consider the implications of more recent changes such as the rising availability and popularity of e-cigarettes and the consequences this could have in terms of bringing us closer to or further from the Tobacco-Free goal. Some light refreshments will be provided.
