Overview of this campaign
Imagine a project that can really change people’s lives. We aimed to create a project that will go far beyond the group of regular readers of GW and reach new groups of readership. A project focused around tomorrownauts - that means, extraordinary people with spectacular achievements in many different fields, in which we could tell their stories, but also allow our readers to meet those people and learn from them. A project socially engaged and engaging - not only do the tomorrownauts inspire the audience, they also encourage them to come up with their own initiatives.
We have also opened up a contest for „Beyond the Horizon Ticket” scholarship for individuals who work on interesting projects. Seven of the tomorrownauts were chosen to act as mentors. Each one of them chose a participant whom they would support in the implementation of projects, as well as in their future careers. That is the mentors’ contribution to our programme and to the future.
We wanted to give readers and participants of the meetings a real-life experience of how we will live in 10, 15 and 20 years. How technology, entertainment and food will change in the future. For that purpose, we created a special expo zone at the Future Festival event.
The project was based on publications in the press ("Gazeta Wyborcza" and its supplements), the Internet (wyborcza.pl website, thematic websites of Agora group), social media (Facebook, Instagram), radio (TOK FM), and events. We built it in the spirit of digital- and mobile-first principles. We published all the stories of Tomorrownauts on the wyborcza.pl/jutronauci website, part of them as video coverages. We also used the website to announce the "Ticket Beyond the Horizon" scholarship program. We spread the information widely through social media channels. We streamed live events online – so that we could reach much, much broader audience. We were watched by people from various places in Poland and abroad, in front of computers and mobile phones, in their homes and outdoors.
