This activity can be delivered in a single or multiple sessions as a school-based campaign, with students bringing their campaigns to fruition within the school.

Students are free to choose how to tackle this: an app, a poster, a game, a radio or TV ad, a leaflet, a short film or a PR stunt. They should think about how to ensure maximum exposure with their bullseye target audience of 14–16 year-olds.

If time allows, they’ll not only write up and present their concepts, but also take them from the scoping stage to the first stage of content creation.
