Why get involved?

Responsible Party is a campaign that requires very little from sections, the concept can be added to any party or event that you are organising. In addition, there potentially many benefits and outcomes for both your section and exchange students, such as:

  • Consider the welfare of exchange students and offer them advice and support at parties to ensure that they have a safe and enjoyrable experience.
  • You can offer more services to your students through the information provision and Responsible Party gadgets.
  • Develop a positive public image with the media, other organisations and city in which you are based

  • Support and guidance offered by ESN and Pernod Ricard. You will receive information, material support, access to the website and advice from experts to help you when organising Responsible Parties
  • No extra work. The concept of the Responsible Party doesn’t require you to organise specialist parties, it is about making all parties responsible and promoting a more healthy and considerate approach towards alcohol consumption. The main role of sections at a Responsible Party will be visibility.
