What is a campaign?
A campaign is a systematic chain of actions aimed at achieving a specific aim.
In other words it is the planning of some specific actions, in order to make the achievement of an aim more likely and effective.

How to organize a campaign?
It is important to define the aim, and consequently to make an action plan, in order to achieve the best results. Let us plan before doing, as happens before starting speaking.

Types of campaigns:
Campaigns can be classified by:

  • Context: background of the aim.
    • Political: for instance, the presidential election in a country.
    • Commercial: for example, an infomercial selling a new product.
    • Social: e.g., posters raising awareness on safe driving.
  • Aim: results of the goal.
    • Raising awareness: focusing the attention of a specific issue.
    • Call to action: invoke an action.
  • Direction: work planning.
    • Local: independent groups organise and make campaigns happen.
    • International: an umbrella organisation (e.g. Greenpeace International) organises a campaign that local groups make happen.
