Transforming Culture with the Science of the Positive & Positive Community Norms

July 11th-14th — Big Sky, Montana


Tired of negative campaigns that 'scare the health' into people? Want a more effective way to tackle health and safety issues? 

Positive Community Norms is a proven health promotion framework that builds on the healthy norms that exist in every environment and population. It has been shown to work with an incredibly wide range of audiences, across numerous health issues. 

Join us and learn how Positive Community Norms can transform attitudes and behaviors from Dr. Jeff Linkenbach, the framework's innovator and founder, and his dynamic team.
