« Climate: The Air We Need »

At a time when global warming seems inevitable and the ecological balance is affected, l'UNION wants to give young professionnals a chance to adress impactful messages to the world.

Fighting against climate change is not an option. During “The Brief”, the speakers will present various topics related to Climate actions. Each team of challengers will be asked to create an ad campaign inspired by “The Brief” to deal with the issues stated by the speakers.

Our 2 coachs, Ramsey Naja and Vincent Montocchio will help the teams giving recommendations throughout the challenge.

For this first edition in English-speaking countries, we have the support of the ACA South Africa (the Association for Communication), the go-to media, the APA Kenya (Association of Practitioners in Advertising) and Marketing Africa (East Africa magazine, in Kenya).
