Taking action on smoking and health
Tobacco Free Generation 2000
The TFG2000 team from Singapore presented a symposium and an independently organised workshop around the end-game idea of setting 2000 as the year of birth forever excluded from tobacco purchase. The team would like to thank ASH Scotland for providing a platform for their ideas and to update on progress.
The team were pleased that the Scottish Government took an interest in the concept and a communications link has now been established between the Scottish Government and the Tasmanian Government in order to monitor the progress of TFG related legislation currently going through the Tasmanian state legislature.

The study suggests specific approaches to promote sustainable development. Finally, the study presents key conclusions combined with demands to the stakeholders in the post-2015 negotiation process.
