We can probably all relate.

Many of us wish we could get rid of a bad habit, be a better friend or parent, spend more time on things that really matter. It is hard to change our own behavior – and probably harder to influence the behavior of others. Change is possible – but how?

This symposium is a knowledge-sharing platform to encourage dialogue and foster research to development linkages.

Discover groundbreaking research, innovative approaches, and inspiring success stories. Engage in thought-provoking discussions and gain valuable insights from leaders in the field. Whether you are a faculty or student, a development professional or researcher working in nutrition, public health, extension, or other fields, or simply passionate about the subject, this symposium is for you!
