Hello everyone! We hope the Myanmar New Year has kicked off well for you all.
Our next meet-up will be at 6:00 – 8:00pm next Monday 7th May at District Coffee, on Saya San Road (here). Arrive at 6pm to order your coffee or carrot juice, and then we’ll kick off at 6:30pm.
We’ve got an important task at this meeting!
After the recent 2018 Social & Behaviour Change Communications (SBCC) Summit, a declaration has been released on the current state of the SBCC sector – which you can find here. Country groups have been asked to discuss the declaration and send back their feedback, so we’ll be reviewing it on behalf of Myanmar. It will be important to have the inputs of many of the opinion leaders in this group, so we look forward to seeing you there!
We’ll be also hearing the reflections of three young Myanmar creatives and social entrepreneurs who went to the SBCC summit – championed by Ester Veldhuis, and funded by the New Zealand Embassy:
· Win Naing, film-maker from Search for Common Ground
· Kyaw Sithu, from the social enterprise Doh Eain
· Saw Yo Har, from My Justice at the British Council
They will lead us in discussing how we can apply learnings from the SBCC Summit back here in Myanmar.
This is a rare opportunity to share our Myanmar perspective with a global SBCC audience. So see you next Monday! Please let Katie Bartholomew (either through her Network profile or via Facebook) know if you can make it. Colleagues/friends are, as always, warmly encouraged.
All the very best,
Katie and Jess
