Working with and for our Communities

01 Doing the right thing

It’s more than just advertising…

A key part of being a Platform for Good is being an active participant and champion of the communities we serve by working on projects that go above and beyond our advertising estate.

Our infrastructure is in communities throughout the UK and is a very real and physical part of those communities, so it’s only right for us to give something back. For Clear Channel, we look to partner with organisations and campaigns that share our values to make a positive contribution to society.

Supporting Communities

We’re proud to share our platform with communities, partners, organisations, campaigns and people who are out there doing their own great things. It’s been a privilege to share knowledge and experiences with so many amazing, impactful campaigns.

We’re 10-year silver patrons of The Princes Trust and partners of Brixton Finishing School, two organisations truly empowering young people. We celebrated a year-long program of work during Black History Month with a panel event: Clear Channel Presents: "Celebrating Role Models and Smashing Stereotypes". And we took our celebration of LGBT Pride, in partnership with Spotify, internationally for the month of June.

Creating debate

In 2019, for the first time, we worked with an artist in residence - Martin Firrell - to explore a range of challenging topics to deliver public artworks with the aim of driving conversation, social change and progressiveness.

The year-long project discussed taboo subjects such as fairness in society, gender, power and race.

Giving Back

We’re investing in local communities through infrastructure and community investment funds alongside local authorities, as well as our own community projects and charitable commitments.

Through a collaboration with long-term partner Trees for Cities, in addition to 400 trees we’ve planted in cities to date, we’re installing Edible Playgrounds into schools to educate children on the benefits of healthy eating.

In a number of seaside towns, we proactively run beach cleaning projects, through back-to-work schemes, in a bid to reduce plastic and litter. And we provide our people the freedom to volunteer to initiatives that share our values, such as the wonderful work of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean.
