The 5th European Social Marketing Conference
“People, Planet, Systems and Solutions”
Addressing wicked problems in a rapidly changing world.
The mission of the World Social Marketing Conference event series is to act as a vehicle to help build a global movement dedicated to capturing, spreading and nurturing good practice in Social Marketing, as well as increase the efficiency and effectiveness of Social Marketing practice at both operational and strategic levels.
What is Social Marketing?
Social Marketing is a set of evidence and experience based concepts techniques and principles that provide a systematic approach to understanding behaviour and developing social interventions that work. It is a fusion of science, experience and practical ‘know how’.
What happens at the conference?
New ideas and evidence will be presented at the conference by thought leaders, practitioners, students and those with a passion for making positive behaviour change happen in their community, country or region through the application of impactful and insightful communication strategies. The event will bring together practitioners, academics, policy makers, researchers and industry experts to explore and enrich Social Marketing practice around Europe.
How can I take part?
The best way to take part is simply to attend the event!
