Urdd Gobaith Cymru

Every year since 1922, the youth of Wales have sent a peace and goodwill message to the world.  Our team worked with the Urdd in a year like no other to continue the tradition pivoting our plan to create a compelling film and supporting communications campaign during the COVID-19 crisis.

Content from the Campaign

A lot has happened since the Urdd’s first peace and goodwill message, and like others before it, 2020’s message was delivered at a time of international crisis. When the covid-19 crisis hit, we helped change focus of the message to one that matters right now. Our team has worked with the Urdd both pre-and during lockdown, producing and directing young members to self-tape parts that makeup the one-minute-long message, with over twenty individuals reading a separate line each. The end result is a powerful message asking everyone in the world, particularly G20 leaders, to Stop the Clock and Start Again.
  • Catherine Zeta Jones shared the video message with her 3.4 million followers
  • Youth magazine Youth News featured the message as well as This Week Junior.
  • Coverage with Celtic friends, namely Cornish Times, BBC Radio Jersey, The Guernsey Press and The Jersey Evening Post.
  • We worked with a young case study who composed a musical piece in response to our call out for youth to self-tape for the video message, which supported the Urdd PR campaign in Wales
  • We overcame numerous challenges that COVID-19 presented and produced a high quality creative and visually appealing, youthful video message.
  • The following year we created a message around women and girls’ rights which reached all around the world once again.
