Brain Awareness Week (BAW) headquarters may be here in New York, but BAW is very much a global campaign: More than half the events during the week occur outside the United States. Our BAW Partners come from all corners of the world, from the Netherlands to Nepal. After each Brain Awareness Week campaign in March we publish a series of posts called BAW Across the Continents, highlighting events from every continent but Antarctica. You can read the posts from BAW 2015 on our Partner Spotlight page.
Perhaps the best way to truly see the global nature of Brain Awareness Week is through the BAW Photo Gallery. For more photos like these, be sure to check out the 2015 gallery.
The BAW photo gallery includes photos from our partners around the world. We’ve got everything from BAW presentations for schoolchildren in Pakistan to giant brain hats at the University of Washington in the United States. Browsing the photo gallery also gives you a sense of the congruency of this global campaign; there are pictures of awestruck kids holding brains from every corner of the planet.
As you start planning for BAW 2016—March 14-20—the photo gallery is also a great place to go for new event ideas and inspiration. Enjoy the pictures!
