PROJECT OVERVIEW

Momentum2 was engaged by Good Things Foundation Australia to provide public relations support for the National Be Connected Campaign that ran in May and June 2021.

CLIENT OBJECTIVES

  • Highlight the digital inclusion help available through the Be Connected program

  • Position Good Things Foundation as a thought leader in this space by engaging spokespeople to share key messages

  • Build the profile of the foundation
     

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Momentum2 created a number of case studies, profiling Be Connected students and digital mentors from all around Australia. We interviewed them each about their involvement with the program, to highlight the impact that learning digital skills can have for older people's wellbeing and the ways that Be Connected is helping to bridge Australia's digital divide.

We pitched these case studies to various local media, including Greek and Chinese language publications, which resulted in 11 of the case studies being interviewed for print and radio features. Editorial was also created about three case studies with outstanding stories, to accompany the advertising campaigns undertaken with News Corp and the West Australian.

Good Things Foundation CEO, Jessica Wilson, was also given a number of great opportunities to offer her expertise on Australia's progress in digital inclusion and the importance of continuing to equip all Australian's with the skills to safely navigate and partcipate in life online.
