About the Project

The “young adults, drinking cultures and social networking” research project is funded by the NZ Royal Society Marsden Fund. Its aim is to explore how young people in Aotearoa/New Zealand use social technologies (Facebook, YouTube, texting, mobile phones and more) in their drinking cultures.


We are disseminating findings from our research in various ways. You can access publications, conference presentations and student theses. Web based resources and advice about alcohol related issues can be followed from our links page.

Published research papers will be announced as they become available.
