CTFK Workshop (pre-registration required)

Room 2 - Yellow room

Attendance only by pre-registration here

Workshop Organizer: Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Washington, DC
Estimated workshop time: 4 hours

Pre-registration required – Maximum 25 places

This workshop will provide a forum for European tobacco control organizations to plan national and joint initiatives to isolate the tobacco industry and advocate for strong tobacco control measures. The initiative will be linked to TakeAPart, CTFK’s global initiative to expose the industry’s bad acts and nullify their influence on policy. Participants will create a preliminary strategic plan, including setting objectives, activities, and deliverables, assigning roles and timelines, and agreeing on next steps and follow-up communication. Emphasis will be given to CTFK’s Big Tobacco, Tiny Targets, a global campaign to stop the world’s largest tobacco companies from targeting kids near schools but the workshop will also engage in brainstorming and prioritization on other pressing issues regarding tobacco industry influence in Europe.

Due to the highly interactive nature and focus on policy advocacy, this workshop will be limited to no more than 25 participants, with preference given to organizations with capacity to engage in policy advocacy, from countries either working toward- or considering enacting FCTC-compliant tobacco control legislation, particularly to ban tobacco advertising near points of sale.
