public debate
Public debate

In public debate those opposed to regulation via legislation have been active

Their strategy has been to muddle up conversation by denying the research results that confirm the effects of advertising on children and teenagers:

”The results are controversial” or ”The international results don’t apply in Finland”.

TOTAL BLOCKER campaign

The main goal was to influence the preparation of the government program for 2011 – 2015, and after that to further the implementation of the measures outlined in the program.

Coordinated by Association for Healthy Lifestyles – from 2012 EHYT Finnish association for Substance Abuse Prevention

Otherpartners:

- Finnish Parents' Association

- The Consumers' Association of Finland

- Finland’s ASH - Action on Smoking and Health

- Finnish Youth Cooperation – Allianssi

Cancer Society of Finland

Campaign is funded by Finnish Slot Machine Association

total blocker
TOTAL BLOCKER

Total Blocker campaign reminds us that despite the law, advertisements for alcohol reach teenagers in many ways: outdoors, at home and in the context of sponsorships and sales promotion.

Total Blocker is an imaginary product meant to illustrate that the problems of alcohol marketing cannot, in reality, be resolved by putting buckets over children’s heads. There needs to be legislation to target the issue.

slide9
For the campaign, we have produced printed and web material on alcohol marketing, organized events and sent material (including the Total Blocker buckets) to political parties, Members of Parliament and the media. The Total Blocker video has been widely shared in social media.

An Open Letter to those Supporting the Proposed Limitations to Alcohol Marketing By JCDecaux Finland

The bill considering the aspirational advertising of alcohol has generated a lot of discussion, which we joined by publishing the “Would You Drink Less?” campaign.

Why? Because the facts do not support the proposed bill, the only thing supporting it is ignorance.

Advertising is a form of competing commercially. With it, one brand tries to get ahead of another. If advertisement is banned, the only choice left is adjusting the price.

And lowering prices always leads to increased overall consumption of alcohol, while the amount of advertising has no effect on the overall consumption.

The patterns of consuming alcohol are learned at home and from friends. That is why good results have been gained from campaigns that aim to influence attitudes: for example, the ‘Kännissä olet ääliö’ (‘Drinking makes you act stupid’) campaign by the Federation of the Brewing and Soft Drinks Industry), which aimed to influence the teenagers’ excessive drinking.

May we show you what advertising really has to do with the consumption of alcohol?

Because there are few resources for education on a large scale, marketing agency BOB Helsinki and JCDecaux Finland Oy hereby offer free help in devising and free marketing space for a campaign, which will be produced in cooperation with Ehyt Ry and/or the National Institute for Health and Welfare.

Leguana Long Drink by Olvi

Launched at the same time with the comment round in May

Associates to ”Legualize it! –slogan used to promote legalization of cannabis

Campaign had been approved by the self-regulation organ of the Finnish Alcohol Industry

Olvi denied all connections to cannabis (”We dont use illegal drugs”)

Slogan was quickly replaced by ”Leguana!” in TV but remained in outdoor commercials

slide17
“…the ad content seems to violate a recently published international code, called the “Guiding Principles for Responsible Beverage Marketing,” issued by the International Center for Alcohol Policies.  Guiding Principle 1 states that alcohol beverage marketing communications should “avoid any association with, or reference to, drugs or the drug culture.” (see www.icap.org)  The company’s attempt to deny an intended association with the drug culture needs to be evaluated not in terms of their intent but in terms of the way the advertising content is perceived by young adults.  It is highly likely that young adults, particularly those who use cannabis, will perceive this ad as being associated with drug use.”
