Consider the needs of your community and the world around you through the eyes of a social marketer. To this end, choose a social, environmental or health issue (e.g. recycling, smoking, domestic violence, speeding, healthy eating, Northern Territory Intervention, etc.) and a specific social marketing campaign as it exists. Employ the 16 principles of success to analyse your selected social marketing campaign.

(e.g. Increased rates in teen pregnancies, decreased whale populations).

1.2 What is the campaign purpose and intended impact or benefit? (e.g. reduced teen pregnancies, protection of whales).
1. How will we evaluate the campaign? What are its measurable outcomes?
