From Google Trends, a popularity chart of social change buzz words over time (in Australia).

Noticeable:

…the decline of “environmental education” and (thankfully) “capacity building”;

…the gradual rise of “social marketing”;

…the steady popularity of “behaviour change”;

…the strange invisibility of “diffusion of innovations” (arguably the only one of these buzz words that represents a coherent body of knowledge!)
