Power Point Presentation

  1. 1. A public relations campaign to increase awareness, educate, and motivate University of Memphis students about sustainability.
  2. 2. Our campaign goal to implement a plan that will educate students about sustainability, raise awareness of sustainability efforts on campus at the University of Memphis, and motivate students to be more actively involved in sustainable efforts. tyep
  3. 3. <ul><li>The majority of the research for this campaign was conducted in fall 2008. We conducted focus groups, collected surveys, and did face-to-face interviews with key members of the U of M administration. We also conducted a focus group in spring 2009, to find out students’ thoughts on the best methods to communicate with them (website, advertising, etc.) Our results indicated a large disconnect between where students wanted to be and where the university currently is. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>After the research was analyzed, our group made the decision to focus on two primary messages for this campaign. Our first message, “Join the Green Revolution,” will focus on positioning sustainability as the thing to do. The second message, “Going Green $aves Green,” is centered on the financial benefits of going green. </li></ul>
