Storytelling is an incredibly powerful tool for social and behavior change. It inspires people to view a topic in a new way or motivate them to make a positive change in their lives. Traditionally, storytelling has been done through face-to-face conversations. However, increased access to mobile phones and social media has changed the way that people can share and hear stories, as well as expanded the number of people reached by one person’s story.
On Wednesday, August 23 from 9:00 – 10:00 AM EDT, HC3 conducted a webinar featuring experiences of young sexual and reproductive health (SRH) champions who have used storytelling to mobilize others around the topic. Speakers gave tips for making quality and engaging videos and positively interacting with viewers. HC3 also launch its newly developed FP INFOcus Guide, which provides step-by-step guidance for producing and promoting mobile phone videos that give young people the information they need to make informed contraceptive choices.
We encourage you to post your questions and experiences about the FP INFOcus Guide and using digital storytelling to improve youth SRH in general. We look forward to hearing from you!
