Connecting Humanity: Best Practices in Humanitarian Communications Conference


An interactive conference focussing on successes, challenges and getting ahead in a diverse, complex, and fast-changing world. 

Humanitarians have powerful stories to tell. Every day they’re providing relief to those in need. They help people who are living through incredible hardship, often fleeing violence, recovering from disaster, or facing health challenges like HIV or Ebola. It’s up to humanitarian organizations to help bring those stories home to Canadians.

Please join us for Connecting Humanity: Best Practices in Humanitarian Communications. Hear from experts who have worked internationally to increase awareness and engagement around humanitarian issues. Humanitarian studies, and communications students, as well as working professionals are invited to the half-day conference at Royal Roads University in Victoria, B.C. on Friday, Jan. 26, 2018. Be part of the discussion, sharing best practices around imagery, digital media, and using technology to reach the most vulnerable.
