We’ve teamed up with Essence Global to run a free masterclass for environmental and climate charities on creating powerful content that inspires audiences to act.

About this event:

In this session you’ll learn to create compelling visual content to use across your digital channels to effectively communicate your climate story.

Advertising experts from Essence Global will share insights on the current social media landscape, as well as techniques for producing videos and visual content as a small climate charity.

Attendees will take away tangible learnings and result-driven strategies to apply within their own organisations.

This masterclass will be an opportunity to learn and explore these themes first-hand along with the following topics:

  • How to create content that works across different digital channels (Facebook, Instagram, Snap, and TikTok)
  • The fundamentals of what makes a good piece of content and the importance of planning
  • Filming on a budget
  • Getting the most out of your content
  • Sustainable production
  • Other free training and resources
