Social Media Information and Resources for World IP Day Campaigns

More than ever, social media engagement has become an essential tool supporting the promotion and celebration of World Intellectual Property Day activities worldwide – some of which occur exclusively on social media as virtual events.

Social media tools to support campaigns are most effective when the networks used and the content posted align with topics that resonate with targeted local audiences.
