Healthy Events

Events are social places where people get together to be entertained. Places where people enjoy music, watch sports, celebrate culture and share food.

Whether your event is small or large, indoors or outdoors, you too can create a healthy event environment.

Healthy Events is all about making the healthy choice the easy choice.

HBDHB’s ‘One for One’ campaign promotes safer drinking through a simple message: drink one glass of water for every alcoholic beverage, whether at home or at a licensed premise.
