In a global world, everyone is your neighbor

Caritas: Weit weg ist näher, als du denkst. Far away is closer than you think.

What we buy, how we live and make contact with others - our daily behavior always has an impact on the living conditions in poor countries. The new annual campaign from the German Caritas is about these global relationships. Through beautiful animation and stop-motion linked with real actors, the problem of global neighborhood is discussed in a playful way. To raise awareness and to promote more individual responsibility.

The problem seems complex but agency BBDO has been able to tell it a simple and clear way. Scenes from a western suburb connected with scenes from districts in poor countries. That far away is closer than you think, shown with four examples in 60 seconds.

Agency BBDO Proximity Dusseldorf worked together with Austrian Designer Isi Wimmer, stop-motion animation expert Jim Lacy and cinematographer Michael Mieke .

The 60-second spot had it’s premiere last Thursday and will be aired from February 18.
See the making-after the break.

Jugend gegen Aids Destroy Aids

Jugend gegen Aids Destroy Aids

The German Jugend gegen Aids are doing something striking in the battle against Aids. Like every year in the run-up to December 1, World Aids Day.
This year they use a hammer, grinder and welder to destroy a huge metal HIV sign – from 25 November to 1 December 2013.

It’s set up in the middle of Berlin for everyone to see through a live stream. Your share on Twitter or Facebook becomes your hammer or your welder, which are then used to take out a piece of the sign – so you can do your part to destroy HIV.

See and Destroy live here.

Does Media Matter for International Development?
