Posted 15th February 2021 by Dave Cross
Vape Nation is a free webinar being hosted by The Adam Smith Institute on 16 February. Three tobacco harm reduction experts will be discussing how the UK can lead the world in embracing safer alternative nicotine products. The other event comes from the other end of the spectrum. The ELMO-ENSP event will be discussing using lifestyle interventions to end e-cigarette use.

Vape Nation, The Adam Smith Institute

  • Date: Tuesday, 16th February 2021
  • Time: 6.00pm - 7.00pm (UK time)

The Adam Smith Institute says it, “has published research on how vaping, snus, heated tobacco and other smoking alternatives can play a vital role in saving the lives of smokers while retaining freedom of choice, and the current political landscape makes reform a more attractive option than ever before.

“Having left the European Union, lawmakers are better able to pass vital regulatory reforms that will help more smokers make the switch to safer products. The forthcoming Tobacco Control Plan presents the perfect opportunity to build on past successes in smoking cessation, while our representatives at COP-9 later this year have the chance to showcase the superiority of the UK’s approach to smoking cessation over more damaging, illiberal alternatives.”

Speaking at the event will be Clive Bates, Director of Counterfactual, We Vape’s Mark Oates, and Chair of the New Nicotine Alliance Martin Cullip.

End E-cigarette Consumption, ELMO-ENSP

  • Date: 20 February
  • Time: 9:00 – 13:00 (Central European time)

The European Network for Smoking and Tobacco Prevention and the European Lifestyle Medicine Organization are hosting an event to plan attacks on tobacco harm reduction and vaping.

We want all Europeans to be able to breathe clean air unpolluted by tobacco smoke. As we communicate more freely and cross-country borders more frequently, we realise that our individual countries do not stand alone; we feel the reverberations of change throughout Europe. Therefore, we undertake to use the best evidence of effectiveness in policy and practice to work together towards our common goal.”

For those interested in putting scientific evidence and questions to the hosts, sign up is free – although the contents of the webinar may be annoying.
