Big Night In

Welcome to the content of the ‘Big Night In’ project.

This project aims promote a greater understanding among young people of the consequences of binge drinking. It uses the voices of young people to provide a range of perspectives on binge drinking. In particular, the project content highlights the many risks and social problems that can result from binge drinking, using the experiences of young people themselves to show how dangerous and socially embarrassing binge drinking can be.

The project comprises a series of twenty-four short radio segments designed to provide young people with information on the social and health effects of, and risks associated with, binge drinking.

We would encourage you to use these radio segments in your local community to help address the important issue of binge drinking.

This program has been produced with the support of the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education, an independent, charitable organisation working to prevent the harmful use of alcohol in Australia.
