Event Planning & Publicity

Publicity Methods Used:

  • Emails
  • Mailings
  • Social Media

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

Mailings were the most successful, as many schools contacted us to let us know they will use the materials next year. We used a mailing list (provided by Eduxarxa) with all schools in Catalonia.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

We have prepared all materials, available on our website (, but events will be hosted next year due to the school calendar.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

Consider the time you will spend preparing all materials and the school’s calendar (most of them have everything planned three months in advance).
