UNFPA – The International Day of Peace






Type: Digital amplification

The United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA commissioned a digital marketing effort as part of its media campaign to recognize and celebrate the International Day of Peace on September 21, 2020.


The Pulse Senegal team immediately rolled out a number of activities to drive the campaign and send out the client’s message clearly. The 2020 theme is Shaping Peace Together. This theme resonated uniquely and was a unique opportunity to promote initiatives for peace in the region. The Pulse team was responsible for digital marketing management, which included the design and deployment of digital content on the client’s social platforms. Other goals for the campaign included the launch and signing of the ‘Peace in the Sahel’ petition and increased awareness about the International Day of Peace in the region.


The digital campaign was deployed and recorded satisfactory results. More than 700 people signed the ‘Peace in the Sahel’ petition, and across social platforms, the #paixausahel and #PutYoungPeopleFirst hashtags received a total of over 607,000 impressions and reached more than 104,000 accounts.


“Our day yesterday was a great success - and it's thanks to all of you. I would like to thank you for your exceptional mobilization. Your commitment shows once again that you are the keystone of the expected change in Africa. Thank you very much for all the efforts made to make this day a real mobilizing event.”
