Thursday, April 24, 2014
11 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Time
(2 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern)
An important aspect of increasing the impact of a primary prevention curriculum or campaign is shifting the focus from individual behavior to the transformation of social and cultural norms. This web conference explores innovative strategies for going beyond individual focused PSAs and curriculum implementation towards a community norms change approach. We’ll take a look at case studies where social media, art and digital storytelling have been leveraged to shift norms and prevent violence.
