  • Change A Life With Just One Swipe - Challenging Stereotypes in Communicating Development: 31 January, 10am-12.30pm, Camden Court Hotel, Dublin 2

This morning event will focus on the issues surrounding the implementation of the Dóchas Code of Conduct on Images and Messages. It will feature a keynote speech from Thea Willoch Njaastad, Project Manager of the Radi-Aid Awards - an annual event organised by the Norwegian group SAIH. The awards highlight the worst examples of stereotyping in fundraising ads with their "Rusty Radiator Award" and praise the most innovative and creative fundraising ads with their "Golden Radiator Award." This will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on why it is so important that we overcome the challenges found in implementing the Code of Conduct as a sector. 

All welcome, but spaces are limited. Please RSVP to aideen@dochas.ie before Wednesday 25th January.
