IT doesn’t happen so often that a campaign provokes a huge media interest, „crushes“ the social networks, initiates a debate in the public, and fosters a dialogue between state institutions and the NGO sector – in just one day. This has been succeeded with the campaign #Unwanted, which crossed the borders of Montenegro and launched a discussion about prenatal tests abuse in the region.
In order to point out a problem that leaves a lasting impact on the demographic image of the society, the NGO Center for Women’s Rights, together with the agency McCann Podgorica, with the support of McCann Beograd team, initiated a campaign to launch a petition to prevent the abuse of prenatal tests which result in selective abortions. The cold statistics posed a challenge for the creators to devise a campaign that is serious and educational and which will at the same time raise awareness about this problem through the story of Unwanted heirs.
In order to launch a social dialogue, we created the song #Unwanted, which competed at the local Eurovision competition.
Campaign #Unwanted has received great public support from numerous public figures and the government of the Republic of Montenegro.
The project #Unwanted was realized by:
