Media resources for campaigning up to the 12th OEWG session
 

NEW! The media and social media toolkits ahead of the 12th UN Open Ended Working Group on Ageing (OEWG) on 11-14 April 2022 are now available on Trello. The toolkit includes a variety of media and social media resources to support advocacy and campaigning in the run-up to the 12th OEWG session. Following on from the success of our Global Rally at the start of the month when we reached more than 1.2 million people on Twitter, we are now asking members and supporters to use at least one of the tweets and graphics in this toolkit in the week before the OEWG, i.e. 4-8 April 2022.

Colour

Shout out “Age with Rights!” by using the colour orange!

Here are some ideas:

  • In meetings, wear your most prominent piece of orange clothing (i.e. an orange hat, scarf or top)
  • Put up an orange banner or create an orange sign somewhere in your office or meeting room with the “Age with Rights!” slogan
  • Use the red-orange colour in your digital communications. The colour code is #FF3300 or RBG: R255,B51,G0.

Personal and Organisational Branding

You, and your organisation, are invited to incorporate the “Age with Rights” slogan into your brand.

Add “Age with Rights” onto stationery items and into your email signatures, or include “Age with Rights” where appropriate, and possible, as a byline alongside your logo. Please follow the instructions above for colour and use ‘Gill Sans MT’ font.

Profile Picture Frame
