To persuade over 1 million EU citizens to support the Fur Free Europe petition aiming to ban fur farms and fur products from the European market.
Signatures were collected via a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI). An ECI is a unique way to help shape the EU by calling on the European Commission to propose new laws. Once an initiative has reached 1 million signatures, the Commission has to respond and take action.
To add to the challenge, citizens must provide personal national ID details for their vote to count.
We created a distinctive, flexible multi-media campaign brand style that people could get behind – not just the general public but supporting organisations and online influencers.
With a campaign duration of 12 months – our primary goal was to provide regular bespoke assets and content to help galvanise public votes.
The campaign itself set a record for being the most successful ECI for animal welfare, ever. Over 1.5 millions valid signatures were collected, surpassing the primary objective. For further context, less than 10% of attempted ECI campaigns are successful in reaching the 1 million signature target.
The European Commission will now decide whether they will implement a new law to ban the fur farming trade in the EU.
