WCRD 2017 - Social Media Resources

Building a #BetterDigitalWorld

On the 15th March, consumer organisations and supporters from across the globe will join forces with one common aim; Building a Digital World Consumers can Trust. To ensure that we maximise the impact of our collective voice we will be running a range of different social media activities for you to participate in.

Social media will be the best way for you to promote your campaign activity on the day and have your say on the digital issues that are important in your country. The #BetterDigitalWorld hashtag will allow us amplify our collective voice and build recognition for our global movement among governing bodies, consumers and other stakeholders.

You can use your social media posts to…

  • Tell your followers about any World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD) events that you are hosting and when these events are taking place.
  • Share links to WCRD publications, reports or articles on your website.
  • Attach pictures of your events and activities on the day.
  • Share facts and information about how digital technology is affecting consumers in for country/ region. 

See below for some suggested tweets and downloadable infographics and Twibbon. 

On Twitter, we’ll be using the hashtag #BetterDigitalWorld and tweeting from our account: @Consumers_Int
