Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

This year the main topics of Brain Awareness Week in Osijek were “Fear”, “Safety” and “Role models”. Our students and teachers/professors at the University Josip Juraj Strossmayer had videotaped their lectures and we posted their lectures to our official YouTube channel so the all interested persons(students, teachers, general public, etc) can see lectures and learn new information and facts about those very interesting topics.

Event Planning & Publicity

Publicity Methods Used:

  • Calendar Listings (newspapers, radio, television)
  • Emails
  • Website
  • Social Media

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

Social media and emails were the most successful because a lot of people use them and we can reach out large number persons individually by sending them emails, on the other hand, social media are excellent for reaching out a larger group of people and it is easier to spread the news via social media.
