Public Awareness

 
Many governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have already launched major public awareness programmes. But there are so many people to reach, and so many behaviours and decisions to influence, that there remains an enormous unmet need for more outreach. Creating a successful outreach programme that truly changes behaviour is not easy to do. To help communicators craft effective programmes, this section links to existing outreach programmes, messages, strategies and copyright-free texts and images that can be applied anywhere in the world.
