#1 - Dismantling the Buying Imperative [2 DAYS: Nov.30th + Dec.1st] FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full


***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

Helping people challenge the economic notion that buying more is a good thing to do. Finding new ways to celebrate the status of those people who reject the high carbon life style. Providing a positive vision of what they have achieved. Generating the creative ideas & communication tactics for challenging/ overturning the fundamentals of brand-sponsored Hyper-Capitalism.




Comment aider les gens à remettre en question un système économique qui valorise le fait d’acheter toujours plus ? Comment, a contrario, mettre en avant ces individus qui ont décidé de rejeter un mode de vie hautement dépendant du carbone, et offrir une vision positive de la sobriété ? L’objectif de cette thématique consistera à élaborer des tactiques créatives afin de changer de perspective et de démonter les fondamentaux d’un hyper-capitalisme sponsorisé par les marques.
