A cleaning tag

A cleaning tag

A new campaign by the French government has made its mark on some of Paris’ walls. Called the ‘clean tag concept’, social messages are stencilled on walls by cleaning  the surfaces rather than painting them. It promotes messages about social issues (helping the homeless), cultural issues(restoring historic monuments) and environmental issues(making the city cleaner).

Why it matters

By using tags in a “clean” perspective, the French state has taken into account the need for the communication format to match the message conveyed. When it comes to social causes, is making the most of urban culture the key to bringing further awareness to a younger audience?

Stand here if you're against the death penalty

‘Ensemble Contre la Peine de Mort’, a French charity against the death penalty, has set up an interactive installation in the François Mitterrand library in Paris. Visitors are asked to stand between two screens; one has a soldier, the other a victim. By standing in between, the soldier is unable to shoot. Visitors can then scan a QR code and quickly sign an online petition against the death penalty.
