Feedback & Keys to Success

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

The participation with Brain Awareness Week provided us with visibility and the consistency of participating in BAW for the past few years have given us credibility in the field.

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

With the activities done entirely online, it is easier to reach schools that need more support. Our suggestion is to consider expanding the scope of impact by targeting schools and organisations that are from developing countries.
