It is aimed at people aged 16-25 years old to take part in the programme.

Hugh’s War on Waste

This campaign was a tv series by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. It was a broad campaign with the purpose of encouraging viewers to change the way they think about waste, and even to change their habits concerning food and plastic waste. It suggested ways to reduce the amount of waste a household might send to landfill by means of reducing, reusing and recycling. One of the many successful outcomes of the campaign was to encourage supermarkets to stop using single use plastics and to donate food to schools, foodbanks and community centres. This tv series encouraged people to engage in various smaller activities in their local community, such and growing food, sharing tools, and upcycling or giving items away for free. The audience could participate in many activities big or small and could be shared on the Twitter page or even feature in the programme. The campaign had pages on many social media channels, including Facebook, twitter, Instagram and its own tv programme, so the campaign reached a large audience.

Beats Bus

Hull Beats bus provides remote workshops in the community via its mobile recording studio. It aims to connect with people in areas that can’t travel or are remote. The audience is primary school children with the opportunity for work given to those who are older. A film ‘A Northen Soul’ documents Stephen Arnott’s journey with converting the bus and raising awareness. One of the goals is preventing crime and drug use in the local area by providing a focus and hobby for the students. Free workshops are offered through fundraising, and this is an ongoing campaign.
