An assignment in my web development class at The George Washington University asked each student to independently design a social media campaign for a social or political cause. We were to choose a mission/message, define our audience, goals, and platforms.
Text in Tweet will include a brief description of Article 19 of the UDHR and the hashtag #HumanRightsareBasicRights
Text of post will include a brief description of Article 26 and the hashtag.
The campaign encourages people to take any of the creative works and display it on their social media.
All Instagram posts will have lengthly descriptions of its corresponding article in the UDHR, a call to action, and the hashtag.
This campaign aims to increase awareness and support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights among youth, the rising generation, and today’s society. In times where the perception of the basic human rights of others are being questioned, this project aims to fully equip tomorrow’s leaders with firm knowledge of universal human rights to have a lasting positive change.
Social media has made its way into the daily lives of everyone — young, old, poor, or rich. The mission’s primary audience is youth, and according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, teens use Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter most frequently. In addition to utilizing those social media platforms, we will also be present on Tumblr, Pinterest, Snapchat, and other rising platforms as they emerge. This will expand our audience to not only youth, but to a larger reach as well.
