Alcohol media literacy program a game changer

Canberra high school students are being challenged to think critically about alcohol advertising, as they take part in an innovative new program designed to counter alcohol industry messages.
Media literacy program Game Changer+ is an initiative of the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE), and is supported by the ACT Government under the ACT Health Promotion Grants Program.
The course is based on a successful NSW pilot developed by researchers from the Australian Catholic University’s Centre for Health and Social Research (CHaSR) in Melbourne. The eight-lesson program is being taught to Year 9 and 10 students at Canberra High School, Caroline Chisholm School, Namadgi School, and Radford College.
