ADVERTISERS WITHOUT BORDERS, the network committed to the promotion of global social causes, has just launched the campaign THE CHILDREN NOTWORK to raise social awareness about child labor.

To know about the campaign, please watch the following video:


As child labor is a worldwide reality, the media chosen to reflect this situation was LinkedIn, one of the largest professional networks on the Internet. This idea, created by Coupé Buenos Aires agency and IURL digital agency, was born when it was detected that LinkedIn does not have a user age limit for creating a profile or generating the job search. Namely, any child can register as a candidate/independent worker without being stopped. The campaign is not intended to damage LinkedIn´s image. This site was simply chosen for being one of the world’s most important professional networks.



Several made-up profiles were open in order to activate this campaign. More than 50 children and 10 companies working with minors in different places of the world were placed on the site. Immediately, all children were connected to hundreds of thousand users through a professional request sent from the site. The people contacted received the request that, symbolically speaking, invited them to accept the reality of child labor or to continue ignoring it.

Professionals, executives, entrepreneurs and opinion liders from around the world have been contacted. The initiative has soon become a topic conversation on social networking sites. Thousands of people have shared the campaign in their walls, on Twitter and on blogs of different languages. International organizations and bodies have joined as well and the world media disseminated the news. The campaign has reached a large viralization with a low budget, generating great awareness results.

We need to start noticing that child labor affects millions of children around the world who do not have access to basic childhood rights. In the same way, it’s still expected that LinkedIn changes its application form making it suitable only for adults. It is intended that this change will apply to social reality as well, aiming to stop child labor going unnoticed.


CHILD LABOR

The International Labor Organization most recent estimate shows that there are 215 million children victims of child labor and that over half of them are involved in its worst different ways, physical, psychological or moral abuse that will cause severe damages for the rest of their lives.

All the children have the right to be protected against exploitation, which hinders their own rights and general development. By entering the labor market prematurely, they are deprived from the access to education, not only for them but also for their families and communities. Education is extremely necessary to rise from the poverty cycle they are immersed in.



Today, there are thousands of companies that make use of child labor as valid currency directly as workforce in their own operations, or indirectly through their suppliers. Acknowledging this situation, each company can co-operate eradicating child labor by controlling their own workforce and suppliers. A childhood free from exploitation is our responsibility.

The children who work:
- Would be the fifth largest population in the world
- Are much more than the total of LinkedIn users
- Are the double of people who watch the Super Bowl.
- Are more than the inhabitants of Brazil.
- Are more people than Germany, England and France together.

Ideal for those addicted to adrenaline, those who don't seem to be able to find an experience that meets their expectations in terms of risk and adventure. Greenpeace Mexico addresses the issue of polluted rivers in the country, by presenting them as touristic destinations. Snorkelling in petrol in Coatzalcoalcos river, or exiting trips to Santiago and San Pedro rivers, where the strange beauty of chemical surf can be discovered, are recomended by local celebrities in ironic TV spots. The campaign also features a web site where you can watch the spots and find information about this important problem.

One thing is to have heard maaany times that it is wrong to use your cell phone while you are driving, because this distraction could lead you to suffer an accident and blah blah blah. Another veeery different thing is to realy experience how obvious this is when you put it in practice. The Belgium-based Responsible Young Drivers (RYD) group decided to use this as a resource to make young people to realize just how real the danger can be when you pretend to be able to do both things at the same time. They deceived young people who assisted to driving lessons to believe that they had to prove they could send text messeges and drive at the same time in order to pass their driving exam, in order to make them "practice". The result is a great campaign and a lesson this "victims" will never forget.

Do you remember the pictures of black lungs we were shown at school? Tobacco Body is exactly the same thing done for the iPad age. It is a tool for teachers to show how tobacco changes our bodies. We've been working with Cancer Society of Finland since the inception of our agency cracking the same problem: How do we get teenagers to think critically about smoking? This time we thought about the school world and soon realized that those pictures in the books are still the same. Isn't it time for an update? Can't technology make the shock effect more shocking?

To this day, there are still drivers and passengers who die in road
accidents because they were not buckled up. Wearing a seat belt
reduces by half the risk of being killed or seriously injured in an
accident. The SAAQ continues its efforts to raise awareness of seat
belt use with ads posted on the Internet as well as in bars and
restaurants. This French-language campaign mainly targets youth age 16
to 24 to bring them to adopt this safety behaviour as early as
possible. If all Quebecers buckled up, 50 deaths and 140 serious
injuries could be prevented every year.
