After years of delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 International Social and Behavior Change Communication Summit kicks off next week and the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs will be strongly represented through dozens of presentations, posters, multimedia showcases and auxiliary sessions.
If you’re onsite in Marrakech, Morocco, please stop by CCP’s booth (28 and 29) and the one being hosted by Breakthrough ACTION and RESEARCH (26 and 27) to introduce yourself and learn more about our programs and job opportunities.
The Summit, scheduled for Dec. 5 through 9, is being organized by a Secretariat led by CCP. It will include a week’s worth of research findings, examples of top-notch programs, thought-provoking plenary sessions and opportunities to connect with some of the top experts in the field of social and behavior change communication. There will be spaces for youth to gather and for participants to share and discuss their insights.
