Hastings campaign to improve school attendance

We will be working with Hastings Opportunity Area (HOA) over the next few months to develop and implement a local social marketing campaign to improve school and college attendance in this vibrant south coast town.  The NSMC have already carried out an evidence review of what types of campaigns works well and why.  We have found that positive campaigns that promote the all the benefits of school are the most effective.

NSMC begins renewable energy projects in Jordan

The NSMC will be working with the King Hussein Foundation in Jordan over the next 12 months to develop three community renewable energy programmes.  Currently Jordan has to import 97% of its energy so there is a real effort going on by all actors in the sector to increase the size of the renewable energy sector. The communities in Beni Kanana, Tafilaha and Amman will receive social marketing and advocacy training which will enable them to develop their own community projects. Funding is being provided by the European Union to implement these new initiatives.
