Materials for combating Coronavirus are being developed rapidly around the world; however not all communicators have the facilities and resources to produce what is needed. The need for immediate and effective communication materials is great – particularly for easy-to-use information resources in varied languages, so that community and other communicators on the ground can adapt and use them as appropriate for awareness-raising and support.
Here we are aiming to provide a platform here for communicators to share their COVID-19 response materials and strategies. This is being done in order to inspire others and make available productions at no cost. Specifically, for awareness-raising, community mutual aid and mobilising, and content for social and behaviour change around hand washing, social distancing and adherence to protection and prevention policies.
Materials include download to print posters, leaflets and factsheets, as well as audio-visual content that can be distributed via social media such as infographics and videos; and broadcast content that can be aired via radio and TV such as public service announcements (PSAs) and celebrity/influencer-driven messages.
We are doing this by using the C4D Network system as well as linked social media platforms facilitate the sharing of communication outputs by community radio, youth media, individual creatives and other communicators within communities.
We are also facilitating the sharing of communication strategies and ideas amongst communicators to provide the essential awareness-raising, mobilising and social norms change support, as well as media support and advocacy.
So please join this effort and send new resources and examples of materials (for reuse, adaption, inspiration) to [email protected], and our volunteer team will review them and share with full credit to the originators via the C4D Network site as well as via our C4D Network Soundcloud, and YouTube channels and other social media.
