Vaping Weekly: Get Ready for World Vape Day!

For this installment of Vaping Weekly, we’re covering one important topic: World Vape Day.

Vaping advocacy and education continue to be crucial parts of our mission to accelerate tobacco harm reduction. If we want to create a smoke-free future, we need the right tools and the right information.

The vaping community is fortunate to have so many global healthcare leaders as allies. However, we also need to educate ourselves and the smokers in our lives if we wish to make the biggest strides in reducing smoking prevalence.

The next few days are big for vaping. World Vape Day, which takes place May 30, 2021, is a community run campaign, supported by more than 40 advocacy organisations from across the world. It aims to reach smokers, policymakers, and the scientific community through a wide range of events, evidence reviews and organic social media testimony.


So, what’s going on and how can you get involved?

Multiple events are being held to celebrate and promote World Vape Day, in different languages and time zones. Here are some of the highlights:
