15 ideas for young activists to fight corruption

Co-author and researcher: Stephanie Burnett

When it comes to fighting corruption, many young people are already making a big difference to the communities and countries they live in. But for those just starting out, the prospect of kick-starting a campaign, running a hackathon or planning a protest can be daunting. That’s why Transparency International created a new anti-corruption kit offering 15 ideas for young activists, with step-by-step guidance on how to turn a plan into action.




Communicating an abstract issue like corruption is a challenge in itself.

Throw in a research methodology, like Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index, and it can become even more complicated when communicating a social issue to the public.

The goal of this animation was to have the general public understand – broadly – what corruption is and how it can be measured.

The animation was even a surprise award-winner. With a modest budget of USD$10,000, this animation won Creativity International Awards’ top prize in 2012 and was a shortlisted finalist for the Digital Communications Awards 2012.
