In conjunction with the Porto Municipal School Department and the Parent Teacher Association of the Pires de Lima School in Oporto, Sogrape Vinhos organised a series of three seminars on how to “Be prepared to speak with your children about alcohol”.
The Nutrition School of the University of Oporto cooperated with the project and the result was a 10 point Charter of how parents can support their children in relation to alcohol.
This project, which served as a pilot for future use by other PTAs, reached approximately 80 people. A brochure “How to Speak with your Children about alcohol” was translated and published in Portuguese and was distributed to all participants (and on a wider basis). Dr. Nuno Borges of the Nutrition School at the University of Porto, a well-known expert in the field was involved in the project.
