About the Event

 Join an Ash Center research team to learn more about Embedded Education, an innovative approach to solving social problems and changing behavior. By reaching communities "where they are," rather than using external actors and media to influence behavior, Embedded Education provides a higher-trust, more efficient and more effective means of providing the information and tools communities need to meet the challenges they face.

About the Series

The Ash Center Student Speaker Series highlights and explores the implications and lessons learned from the research projects or applied learning experiences of Harvard University students supported by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. Each week, we invite two students to offer brief remarks on their work, or a response to one another’s work, and then open the table for discussion. The series will take place each Friday at noon in the Ash Center foyer, 124 Mount Auburn Street, Suite 200-North. Lunch will be provided.
