UN Global Call to Creatives
. . .
For the ﬁrst time, the United Nations is launching an Open Brief to creatives everywhere to help spread public health information in ways which will be effective, accessible and shareable.
“We need help translating critical public health messages — not just into different languages — but into different cultures, communities and platforms — reaching everyone, everywhere. We need to meet people where they are, with a stream of fresh, innovative content which drives home the personal behaviours and societal support needed today.
“By reaching out to creatives around the world, we hope to inspire creators, inﬂuencers, talent, networks and media owners who can take these key messages and bring their own magic to them — a creative twist, a cultural quirk, an interpretation which helps amplify them to audiences we are not yet reaching.”
The UN has identified 6 key areas that need to creative responses, to educate communities around the globe.
- Personal hygiene
- Social distancing
- Know the symptoms
- Kindness contagion
- Myth busting
- Do more, donate
