MCSP at the 2018 International Social and Behavior Change Communication Summit

Posted April 12, 2018

What works in shifting norms, changing behaviors, and amplifying voice?

Add your thoughts to this discussion from April 16-20 during the 2018 International Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) Summit in Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia. The conference will address some of the primary challenges facing the SBCC community — understanding what approaches work and what investments in SBCC programming can expect to deliver, and making sense of the complexity and diversity in the field of SBCC that would facilitate greater investment.

Stay abreast of summit highlights from @MCSPglobal and via a daily MCSP-sponsored tweet from SBCC Summit coordinators, @JohnsHopkinsCCP. When sharing your views and news around the event, please use hashtag #SBCCSummit.
