VIDEO: Undercover at the Wellington Sevens

VIDEO: Undercover at the Wellington Sevens | Alcohol misuse in NZ - some key resources | Scoop.it
Campbell Live sent an undercover reporter to the Sevens, to find out what really goes on.
Rachael Dixon's insight:

Activity:

1. What determinants/factors influence sevens-goers to drink to excess? Write a paragraph that includes ideas for cultural, political, economic and social determinants.   

 

2. What implications arise from groups of sevens-goers drinking to excess? Think about consequences for personal well-being, relationships with others and the local community/whole of NZ society.

 

3. The organisers had rules (and police) in place to try and limit alcohol as well as providing the "chill-out zone". This relates to host responsibility, problem-limitation* and supply control*. Discuss how these actions could enhance well-being, but also their limitations.

 

4. Suggest alternative actions that could be taken to enhance well-being in relation to alcohol misuse at the sevens. Consider actions that SEEK TO ADDRESS the influencing factors from (1) above. These are likely to relate to demand reduction*.

 

*See the National Alcohol Strategy: http://www.ndp.govt.nz/moh.nsf/pagescm/576/$File/nationalalcoholstrategy.pdf ; or Chapter 3 of “Strengthening Community Action on Alcohol” from ALAC.
