Communication for Development Event Melbourne

Posted on Updated on

Communication for Development approaches in the Australian NGO sector and academia / Knowledge sharing & networking for an improved practice

Wednesday 3rd June 2015, 2PM-6PM, Melbourne

2015 ACFID University Network Conference – side event

 

This event brings together academic researchers from Australian universities and think tanks with Australian NGO practitioners. The aim is to provide a platform for international development actors involved or interested in communication for development (C4D) work to share experiences, lessons learned and recommendations that can contribute to an improved practice. Connections between practitioners and researchers on C4D-related research projects that strengthen the value of the practice are also facilitated.

An additional aim of this seminar is to offer a space to those who have an interest in this field and are planning to kick-start new C4D activities. It is a forum to brainstorm ideas and to put forward questions related to programme design to an experienced audience.

This event will be a unique opportunity to gather knowledge on the status of C4D work among Australian NGOs and research institutions, and to create a network of organisations where that knowledge is regularly exchanged.
