TURNING HARD CORE PUBLIC SERVICE CONTENT INTO EVENTS Content defined as strictly public service is sometimes thought of as hard to sell. Let’s challenge this thought and discuss how demanding genres and projects can be made to reach out in new ways. Learn more about how public service content and Pisa results correlate. Be inspired by smart packaging solutions, engaging event recipes, social media strategies and buzzcreating international simulcasts. Be part of the movement yourself by introducing an idea that could go global! Case Studies: (4 x 15’) •
