Highlights from each Blue Sky session will be presented at the Town Hall plenary session on February 10th at 4:00pm in Conference Room 1.

Communication for Transformation: Action Media – Global Experiences and Practice

The Action Media methodology, developed in the 1990s to inform HIV communication between youth in South Africa, has since been reiterated and applied to many countries, diverse audiences and a range of issues. The approach focuses on how audience representatives engage with health issues both as individuals and within small collectives and how these insights can be utilized to mobilize change. Participants will engage with Action Media case studies and discuss the methodology’s application to their work.

Expanding the Menu of Formative Research Methods for Gender Transformative SBCC

Gender-transformative SBCC programs require knowledge of the sociocultural context in question and the gender dynamics and influences at play. In this interactive workshop, facilitators will briefly cover gender theory as well as the four qualitative research methods. Case studies from their programmatic work in family planning in Albania, WASH in Benin, integrated nutrition, agriculture and WASH in Ethiopia, and maternal health in Mali will illustrate their approaches to understanding these sociocultural contexts of behavior and gender, as well as prepare participants to assess which research method should be applied to their own formative research.

How to Leverage a Community Video Approach for Health, Nutrition and Agriculture

Facilitators of this workshop will take participants through the community video approach process, from producing, editing and dissemination, to monitoring and evaluation of these locally made videos.

From Silicon Valley to Sierra Leone: Applying Human-Centered Design Principles to Change Behaviors and Community Social Norms for Better Maternal, Newborn and Child Health

Human-centered design - which prioritizes listening, empathy, prototyping and iteration in collaboration with communities - still isn’t widely applied to the creation of SBCC interventions, despite how much they rely on participatory processes. This panel’s objective is to discuss creative and community-centered SBCC interventions in Ghana, Malawi and Sierra Leone that systematically utilized human-centered design for behavior change. Panelists will also discuss how these interventions were designed for scale from the outset and rigorously evaluated to test the theory of change pathways and to document the entire design process.

Capacity Strengthening Part 2: Mobilizing Resources for Financial Sustainability

This is the second workshop in a three-part series on improving the sustainability of SBCC organizations.

While the number of NGOs aspiring to move away from reliance on donors continues to increase, greater organizational sustainability depends on an organization’s ability to remain both mission-driven in the face of the shifting funding landscape as well as responsive in their resource mobilization capabilities. Using a learning-by-doing approach, workshop participants will be broken into teams that will assess organizational case studies using the Resource Mobilization Implementation Kit (I-Kit) created by the workshop facilitators with these goals in mind.

Seeing is Believing: How to Use Direct Observation and other Ethnographic Methods for WASH SBCC Programming

SBCC designed to improve WASH programming tends to be informed by quantitative data from baseline surveys and qualitative data from focus group discussions and in-depth interviews. While both of these methods have their advantages, both rely on self-reported behavior or their family’s or community’s behavior. The objective of this workshop is to prepare participants to employ direct observation and additional ethnographic methods of data collection which provide more insight into behaviors beyond what’s reported. Participants will use these methods on-site at the conference venue and report back their findings and assessments.

African Civil Society Centre (ACSC)

Civil society in Africa is under assault on many fronts. We are experiencing many restrictions on political space, the erosion of women’s rights, increasing inequality and, in addition, climate change which is already having significant impacts across the continent. We therefore need to increase our cooperation, solidarity and the sharing of experiences as African civil society while building our capacity to mobilise and organise our civic struggles, and to shape development agendas at the local, national and international level.  

It is against this background that ActionAid and CIVICUS, in collaboration with  regional coalitions, have come together to discuss the proposition for establishing  a dynamic and robust space where progressive and engaged African Civil Society leaders  can convene.

The ACSC vision is to foster an environment of democratic, equitable, sustainable and transformative change in Africa, one in which popular struggles against poverty and injustice can successfully shift the balance of power and attain respect for the human rights of all. 

The mission is to promote and strengthen the effectiveness of African solidarity and integration, bringing together networks to build trust and cooperation amongst Civil Society leaders, for reflection and experience sharing in pursuit of the ultimate goal of eradicating  poverty and injustice.

The key objectives of the proposed ACSC are to: 

  • Create space for civil society organisations and social movements to coalesce ideas and build people's power as well as amplifying the collective voice of African citizenry and thus increasing their influence to challenge the status quo.
  • Enhance leadership capacity of civil society in Africa by strengthening leaders of organizations and social movements involved in multiple struggles for a more just, democratic, equitable and sustainable world. 
  • Strengthen and support movements and Movement building in order to enhance  collective power to bring about structural change on issues pertaining to the movements’ identity


This session will be led by Kumi Naidoo, Launch Director of the proposed ACSC, and is intended to be interactive.

Complexity Matters: Aligning the Evaluation of Social and Behavior Change with the Realities of Implementation

On October 9 2015, the CORE Group’s Social and Behavior Change Working Group designed and hosted a one-day workshop to explore new and emerging ideas for M&E of SBC. The group discussed whether behavior change evaluations as currently conceived can be responsive to the dynamic background in which interventions operate, looked at the needs and dynamics driving new trends in thinking for M&E of SBC, brainstormed on-the-ground approaches and limitations to engaging audiences and communities in M&E, and discussed the implications of greater community inclusiveness.


This panel will synthesize that discussion for the audience at this Inaugural SBCC Summit and present a “Call to Action” encouraging implementers and donors to make evaluation more responsive to the contextual realities of implementation. The panelists will include:

  • Joseph Petraglia, Senior Behavior Change Advisor, Pathfinder International
  • Janine Schooley, SVP, Project Concern International

Translating a Global Toolkit for Local Solutions

The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) created a Demand Generation Implementation Kit (I-Kit) that addressed the need to build local and national capacity around the development of demand generation communication strategies for 13 RMNCH commodities prioritized by the United Nations Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children Health (UNCoLSC). The I-Kit includes step-by-step guidance through the process of communication strategy design, specific details on each commodity and how strategies around gender, public-private partnerships for demand generation and the integration of ICT intersect. The panel will discuss successes and challenges of translating this global I-Kit for local contexts.

Lion's Den
SBCC Lion’s Den is a Health Communication case competitionwhere three undergraduate and/or graduate student teams won scholarships to present their proposal on specific ways to extend or add novel, innovative elements to an existing intervention, in this case, handwashing.

The team with the strongest proposal and pitch will receive $5,000 to further develop their concept and implement a small-scale, six-month pilot project in their local community to demonstrate “proof of concept” and the potential for the intervention to be replicated and scaled.

Come and cheer on the teams!

Capacity Strengthening Part 3: Finding and Filling SBCC Gaps

This is the third workshop in a three-part series on improving the sustainability of SBCC organizations.

Partnerships and collaboration are critical components to any SBCC intervention. Too frequently, however, partners and collaborators do not possess the SBCC skills and knowledge necessary for their roles in the intervention to be most effective. This workshop will introduce participants to a wide range of SBCC tools that are designed with these “SBCC gaps” in mind and can be utilized to build the SBCC capacity of partners even when time and resources are lacking. Participants will apply these tools to case studies to determine how best they can fill in the missing skills and knowledge.

Strengthening SRH SBCC Programs for Urban Adolescents

Most of the world’s adolescents live in low- and middle-income countries – and, increasingly, in cities. Reaching urban adolescents effectively during these formative years when their self-esteem and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) are still developing requires tailored communication patterns to suit their needs to promote healthy patterns of decision-making. Presenters will give an overview of the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3)-developed Urban Adolescent SRH SBCC Implementation-Kit and facilitate small group exercises around worksheets from the I-Kit. Participants are encouraged to bring data for an existing program to complete the exercise.
