For decades, the tobacco industry has deliberately employed strategic, aggressive and well-resourced tactics to attract youth to tobacco and nicotine products. Internal industry documents reveal in-depth research and calculated approaches designed to attract a new generation of tobacco users, from product design to marketing campaigns aimed at replacing the millions of people who die each year from tobacco-attributable diseases with new consumers.
Central Australian Aboriginal Congress was at the Alice Plaza spreading awareness World No Tobacco Day 2020 and to promote a new school competition.
To celebrate World No Tobacco Day, Congress is inviting students to get creative and say why they don't want to smoke. Entries can be short film, class plays or posters.
Entries close 12th of June 2020 and can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information contact Glenn Clarke through his email. Winners will be selected by a judging panel at Congress and will be announced on the 19th of June 2020.
