Description

Description

Communication affects us all. Today, 12 years after the World Congress on Communication for Development (C4D) in Rome, the players in the field of development have multiplied. Private organizations and enterprises have joined traditional aid actors in the search for sustainable development solutions. Marketing, branding and design are steadily becoming familiar concepts for non-profit organizations. Stakeholders benefit from cooperation and get better results by bringing their diverse skills and experience to the table. The Communication for Development (C4D) course aims to bring together professionals from completely different backgrounds. It associates development practitioners and policy-makers with academics and creatives, with the common goal of using communication tools more effectively to create lasting social change. The course will provide learners with an interdisciplinary set of communication tools for creating social change and paving the way to sustainable development. It will impart the skills required to integrate design thinking into develop projects and communicate effectively in a world that suffers from communication and information overload.

Target audience

Target audience

It is rare for a UN-system organization to invite creatives and academics to participate in a course together with practitioners and officials. But this mix of know-how and skills is essential if we are to achieve a fuller and more inclusive understanding of good communication for true human needs. The borders between our worlds are blurring and we should tap into new ways of co-designing and implementing sustainable change and having a real impact. The C4D course is open to development practitioners (not only communication officers but also field project managers, advocacy officers and fundraisers) from UN agencies, bilateral agencies, the EU and other non-profit organizations, consultants, government officials, researchers and creatives.
