The Campaign

The reversed dynamics of conversations around cigarettes and smoking were applied by focusing on the benefits from not smoking. Significant aspects of a youth’s life became the key messages: - Better Health: Stay smoke-free to stay fit - Better Look: Stay smoke-free to stay beautiful - Better Wealth: Stay smoke-free to get rich - Better Environment: Stay smoke-free to stay green Challenges and insights from 2009 post campaign evaluation against TA Youths 15-25 years old: -Social/peer influences are strong drivers so we must consistently inspire them to stay smoke-free. -Government campaigns are seen as preachy. -Cool factor is what define youth. -Youths like more direct messages about smoking. -Humour if done well is powerful as they will naturally talk about it with friends. -Reach alone is not enough; be in their space. -Social Media is integral; leverage on social media to initiate & facilitate conversations -refer to email-
