WWF’s Earth Hour partners with Mobext to launch 'Tweet Your Leader'

WWF’s Earth Hour, has partnered with  Mobext Singapore, the mobile marketing brand of Havas, to launch a Twitter campaign called ‘Tweet Your Leader’  that seeks to mobilise public support for firm action on climate change as leaders converge in Paris, France for the world’s largest climate conference yet.

Launched last week, Earth Hour’s Tweet Your Leader campaign runs in conjunction with the 21st Conference of the Parties or COP21, the apex global summit of heads of state, multilateral agencies, business leaders, ecologists and civil society campaigners, which is being held in Paris from 30 Nov-11 Dec 2015 and which aims to codify binding commitments to stem and roll back greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change. Organised under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), COP21 will see delegates from 196 member states and regional organisations come together to discuss opportunities and means to curb emissions, limit global temperature rise and steer the world away from a path of catastrophic climate change.  

Given the role of people in climate change and climate action, Tweet Your Leader aims to take the climate conversation from the conference rooms to the living rooms, encouraging citizens around the world to reach out directly to their policy-makers to urge them to change climate change.

Sid Das, Executive Director, Earth Hour Global, said, “As the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, we were keen to connect the grassroots to the corridors of power during COP21, a critical milestone in global climate efforts. Through Tweet Your Leader, we aim to show leaders seated in the meeting rooms that the world is standing with them to make climate change history.”

Kat van Zutphen, General Manager, Mobext Singapore, said, “We are very excited to be partnering with WWF’s Earth Hour for yet another campaign. The agency’s commitment to #changeclimatechange is inspiring and very much in sync with our group’s ‘Meaningful Brands’ outlook. While working on this campaign we were focussed on ensuring that the integration process with Twitter was kept simple to allow for ease of use and we feel it’s already getting a lot of traction with users.”

Earlier this year, Mobext also partnered with Earth Hour to launch the #TweetMyPower campaign, an innovative fundraising platform aiming to use the power of hashtags to mobilise support for the movement in the lead up to Earth Hour 2015.

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
