This activity encourages students to create a water safety campaign, aimed at their peers, to communicate the RNLI’s important ‘float’ message.

This activity can be delivered in a single or multiple sessions as a school-based campaign, with students bringing their campaigns to fruition within the school.

Students are free to choose how to tackle this: an app, a poster, a game, a radio or TV ad, a leaflet, a short film or a PR stunt. They should think about how to ensure maximum exposure with their bullseye target audience of 14–16 year-olds.

If time allows, they’ll not only write up and present their concepts, but also take them from the scoping stage to the first stage of content creation.

Play this video to help share our key water safety messages and bring the work of the RNLI to life for your young people.
