Why is this work relevant for Entertainment Lions for Music?

For the past two decades, the stopping power of music has been an integral element of TELUS’s advertising. From signature tracks by the most prominent musicians of our time, to collaborations with up and coming local bands, the art of matching music to the message is one of the reasons that TELUS has become one of the most iconic and likeable brands in Canada.

Background

Situation
One million kids in Canada are cyberbullied every month. It’s a growing problem, with sometimes tragic consequences.

As one of Canada’s largest telcos, TELUS recognized that in order to truly deliver on their brand promise, ‘the future is friendly’, they needed to do everything in their power to ensure the technology they sell isn’t enabling the negative online experiences that are harming our kids.

Brief
Find a way to engage and activate kids around TELUS’ #EndBullying initiative during the weeks leading up to Anti-bullying week when the cause will be more topical.

Objectives
Get kids to embrace our #EndBullying message and act on it.
1. Action: Reach 1 million pledges to be kind online by the end of 2018
2. Engagement: Achieve 1.0M impressions during the campaign period

Describe the creative idea

No single person can end cyberbullying - but there is remarkable strength in numbers.

Though adults are inclined to step in and help, with cyberbullying only kids can credibly confront the issue. But standing up to cyberbullying is too much to ask of individuals: individuals get bullied—but groups don’t. Studies show that when youth band together, they can effectively end cyberbullying almost immediately. In fact, within 10 seconds of intervening cyberbullying is stopped.

Progress required mobilising a generation of digital natives to stand together against cyberbullying, so our communications strategy was rooted in the idea ‘Strength in Numbers’. The power of youth is in their collective voice, and by inspiring them to stand together we could effectively prevent and stop cyberbullying.

Describe the strategy

TELUS launched a National integrated campaign asking kids to stand together and pledge to be kind online. But they knew that ads alone wouldn’t be enough to engage kids and activate them around the cause.

To get them to take notice of the message, amplify it, and act on it, it had to be delivered in
a relevant channel, using familiar language, by a credible source. The solution could not look
or feel anything like conventional advertising; TELUS had to create something that could exist on its own merits within popular culture.

So, TELUS partnered with SonReal, a Juno-nominated Vancouver-based rapper with a strong youth following, to create a positively-charged anthem that kids could rally around. He’d seen how his nieces and nephews were affected by cyberbullying and, like most recording artists, had been on the receiving end himself.

Describe the execution

Implementation
Leveraging SonReal’s social influence, we first launched the #EndBullying anthem, “No More” to his fans on a variety of social platforms leading up to Anti-bullying week, when the conversations would be most topical. He performed the song live at WE Day in front of an audience of 18,000 youth to spread the message. And through a press tour across the country, including iHeart radio, Virgin Radio and schools, he spread the anti-cyberbullying message and showed youth they are not alone.
