Greetings

Shifting Norms, Changing Behaviours, Amplifying Voice, WHAT WORKS? – the 2018 International Social and Behaviour Change Communication Summit.

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

ABSTRACTS SUBMISSIONS CLOSE NOVEMBER 27, 2017

Please consider attending and submitting an Abstract

Date: April 16th to 20th, 2018

Venue: Nusa Dua, Indonesia

Rationale: Distilling what works for effective action to shift norms, change behaviours and amplify voice is vitally important for effective and principled development action. This applies across all development issues including, for example, health, extreme poverty, gender inequities, emergencies and conflicts, acute and chronic diseases, climate change, rights and democracy and governance, among others. The collective power of people to transform the factors that govern their lives is the true heart of development. In order to improve and advance the effectiveness of this work we need to better understand “what works”.
