Bringing back safe conviviality: HOTREC, Responsible Party and ESN sign declaration
On 24 June 2021, HOTREC joined the conference “Being young and responsible in times of crisis” in Brussels to discuss the reopening of venues and how to bring back conviviality responsibly and safely. The event was organised by Responsible Party – a Manifesto aiming at promoting responsible alcohol consumption among young adults – in collaboration with Euractiv.
On this occasion, HOTREC joined Responsible Party and the Erasmus Students Network (ESN) in signing a Declaration to empower young adults and support hospitality by promoting safe, responsible behaviour and lifestyles across Europe.
“As representatives of bars, hotels, and restaurants in Europe, spending time together in a safe environment, welcoming our young generations better – both as clients, but also as workers – is a priority for us. At HOTREC, we especially feel a close connection with young adults where hospitality could be their career of choice moving forward, making support and solidarity paramount to our sector’s reopening throughout Europe.” Stated Marie Audren, Director General of HOTREC.
The partnership encourages safe reopening and hopes at bringing conviviality back in a responsible way. Individual organisations are invited to join and sign this Declaration and become part of this movement to enjoy convivial moments in Europe safely and responsibly.
