In brief: Sunscreen, check-up.
Sunscreen and less intense sunlight exposure can really help lower risk of skin cancer.
Frequent check-ups with your doctor/dermatologist also help greatly.

In brief: Education
It is a slow process, unfortunately.
(along the lines of "how can we convince people to stop smoking?") until it becomes hip to be pale, i recommend sunless tanning products, which can give the look without the aging and skin cancer effects.
