DDB Creates 'Heroes of Today' Platform to Unite Organisations in Fight against Intolerance
The platform’s first action was to release a short film focusing on the story of Jesse Owens
DDB Spain has launched “Heroes of Today”, a platform designed to confront social intolerance and discrimination by bringing together a number of brands who want to transform society. The Professional Football League, Iberia, the Post Office, Telepizza, Clínica Baviera and 11811 have been the first to sign up.
These organisations are committed to social initiatives, coming together to increase their impact in the belief that by working as a team they can be much more effective. Losheroesdehoy.com
seeks out and tells real stories about real heroes, members of the public, employees and others who share their experiences and learning and fight for a better world, because as long as there is still intolerance or discrimination, we will continue to need heroes.
The platform will also provide users with access to the social projects and NGOs the brands are committed to so they can cooperate with them directly.
The platform’s first story about heroes is a short film starring Jesse Owens, one of the 18 African-American athletes who competed at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. The piece shows his experiences during his journey to the legendary Olympic Stadium and reflects on the racial discrimination currently to be found in sport.
