Educating the public
Sustainable Seafood Week aims to educate Hong Kong audiences on what sustainable seafood is, why it is important and how to eat well while protecting our oceans. The third edition ran from 10–18 November 2018 and encompassed events including the Savour Local Flavours Market, Aquaculture Tours, and outlets citywide serving ocean-friendly menus. The challenge was to emphasise the detrimental effects of unsustainable fishing practices, while changing habits through consumers and vendors pledging to eat and sell only sustainable seafood.
Sinclair was appointed to lead the overall campaign, drive omnichannel discourse, provide strategic stakeholder consultancy, and educate the public on Sustainable Seafood Week and the importance of sustainable seafood consumption.
Developed and implemented a tiered, omnichannel approach to drive campaign awareness, from pre-event buzz with preview tours to engagement at the market, leveraging strategic alliances to activate key media and consumers.
The market offered sustainably sourced local delicacies and crafts, educational booths, and a VR experience. Tours offered first-hand views of the local fishing industry, with a chance to meet fisherman and try sustainable dishes.
Built and leveraged strategic alliances to ignite change citywide and activate media across sectors. Partners included OpenRice, ASC, MSC, 300+ hotel and restaurant outlets and 5 major supermarkets.
Invited target media and KOLs to an exclusive preview of tours and market to build thought leadership, editorial and social content. Celebrities Rosina Lam endorsed the initiative as ambassador, and Rikko Lee served as the MC at the market preview.
Ideated creative concepts and developed key design collaterals, including the event poster and adaptation, icons and panels used at the Savour Local Flavours Market and on the website.
