Hey Victoria! Let’s Talk About Your Drinking was a community dialogue held on March 15, 2018. This event was part of a series of Vital Conversations connected to important issues and trends identified in Victoria’s Vital Signs, Greater Victoria’s annual check-up. It was hosted by the Victoria Foundation in collaboration with the Community Action Initiative, and facilitated by SHIFT Collaborative.
The workshop focused on fostering open conversation across sectors and perspectives about one of our society’s biggest pastimes: drinking alcohol. Together, participants explored some of the perceptions, evidence, opportunities and challenges related to moderate drinking in our community.
