About Social Norms Campaigns

Social norms are the unwritten rules about how to behave, and most of us usually hold similar, healthy, positive views. But sometimes we think our peers hold different views based on a vocal minority that holds unhealthy attitudes. This can make us less likely to act on our own values and beliefs.

Social norms campaigns use data from your own community to communicate the healthy attitudes of the majority, which encourages everyone to increase prosocial behavior. Read an overview of the Social Norms Approach.
