Here at Young Friends of the Earth try to be as creative as possible in our campaigns which staying true to the message of the campaign. We channel our high energy and passion for environmental and social justice issues through all sorts of means including performance, demonstrations, film, debates, banner drops art-making and much more.
Creativity is an important part of campaigning. Not only can it help get a message across, engage new people and attract media attention; but it’s often fun too! It can be a clever way of carrying out an action as it is often unexpected and can surprise your campaign target. Everyone can be creative. You just need to find a way of facilitating creative thinking and sparking ideas. There are different ways of doing this like meeting in a different or unusual location, sharing our unique interest and skills, using props, music or food during a brainstorm and being inspired by past actions.
