Brief:

 

Design a Long Lands Common publicity campaign which encourages people to pledge to buy a share.

 

Objectives:

 

  • Due to Coronavirus Covid 19 it is hard to communicate face-to-face at the moment with people that don’t live in the same household as us. Your campaign will use a range of communication skills to help overcome this, and allow people to engage with the Long Lands Common project at a safe distance. Methods you might choose include: email and social media (please ask your parents’ permission to do this and if you do not have a social media or email account, perhaps they will let you use theirs?); a YouTube video or stop animation; homemade banner or poster displayed at home on a gate facing into your street and phone calls to self-isolating friends and family. Don’t just copy these examples, please also include some of your own unique approaches as well to put your individual stamp on your campaign.

  • As well as passing on the project’s key messages (including importantly how to purchase community shares) your campaign should be creative, fun and memorable.

  • Your campaign should encourage others to pass on the news about Long Lands Common, get involved and ultimately get people to pledge to buy a share on our ‘pledge’ page: https://www.longlandscommon.org/pledgetobuyashare

  • If some of your contacts want to pledge and cannot access the internet, you could offer to register their details for them.
