As Marketing & Communications Advisor for the Dutch Spark for Clean Cooking Solutions, I managed the project’s event marketing at the 8th International Primary Care Respiratory Group conference in 2016. As part of the initiative, I organised a conference session and created a series of promotional materials to showcase the goals and results of the project (flyers, presentation, session description). As a result, the project sparked the attention of healthcare professionals working on respiratory issues in developing countries.
Worldwide, almost 3 billion people rely on traditional cookstoves and open fires to cook and heat their homes, facing multiple health risks such as injuries and serious respiratory illnesses. Under the umbrella of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, the Dutch Spark for Clean Cooking Solutions is a coalition committed to providing clean cookstoves for 50 million people in developing countries.
