Conservation International and Clear Channel join forces to bring the sounds of nature to the streets of Glasgow and around the world for COP26

Conservation International launches a new global out of home (OOH) campaign, “Hear me while you can,” in partnership with Clear Channel to make sure nature has a voice at the table at COP26.

The campaign invites the public to immerse themselves in the beautiful sounds of nature, and learn more about why we need to act now to protect nature.

The campaign will run across Clear Channel’s global digital advertising footprint. The campaign will launch in Glasgow, then expand across the world through the duration of COP26 to reach millions of people.

New York, New York – Over the next two weeks, 20,000 world leaders and delegates will meet in Glasgow to discuss solutions to the world’s climate crisis. And there’s a voice that we need to make sure is heard louder and clearer than ever before: nature.

Conservation International today announces a new global OOH campaign with Clear Channel, “Hear me while you can,” to make sure nature is heard at COP26 and to inspire world leaders, delegates and people around the world to understand what will be lost if we fail to protect nature.

Over the duration of COP26, Clear Channel digital screens will showcase Conservation International’s new campaign, which invites passers-by to stop and listen to the beautiful sounds of nature.

The digital screens will feature a QR code which, once snapped, transports the public to, where they can listen to some of nature’s most majestic soundscapes, from the Amazon rainforest to South African savannah, from Southeast Asia mountains to the North Pacific Ocean, and learn more about Conservation International’s work to protect nature around the world.

Conservation International’s campaign invites world leaders and people worldwide to immerse themselves in the many voices of nature, and in doing so, be moved to believe that together, we have the power to protect and replenish those voices.

The campaign comes as nearly 3,000 delegates participated in the Convention on Biodiversity COP15 talks earlier this month, where governments agreed to pledge more investment to protect biodiversity. Conservation International warns more attention is needed to halt the unprecedented destruction for another reason: to fight climate change.

“Nature isn’t just something that is beautiful to see and hear – it is essential in the fight to slow climate change, to our very survival. The science on this is clear: if we don’t invest in stopping the destruction of nature, we will fail to avert climate catastrophe – even if we get everything else right,” said Dr. M. Sanjayan, CEO of Conservation International. “We are working across the global south – and now, here at COP26 in Glasgow – to drive investments to nature for the benefit of people and the climate.”

Nature can provide at least 30% of global action required to prevent the most dangerous impacts of climate change — yet solutions such as protecting, restoring and managing forests, mangroves and peatlands receive less than 3 percent of all global climate funding.

“Hear Me” gives a nod to the award-winning “Nature Is Speaking” films that Conservation International launched with MAL\FOR GOOD in 2014, and whose tag line, “Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature,” drives home the point that saving nature is really about saving ourselves.

Clear Channel is lending its support to the campaign by donating advertising space on digital screens across its markets, in Europe, the Americas and Asia. This global scale has the potential to reach millions of people worldwide.

This global pro-bono out of home campaign builds on Clear Channel’s longstanding commitment to using OOH’s unique strengths, its mass reach and ability to build brand fame, to give a voice to some of today’s most pressing issues — in this case, climate change.

William Eccleshare, CEO of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. explains, “At Clear Channel, our ambition is to create a better world through the ways in which we use our out of home advertising platform. This can only be achieved if we protect the future first. We’re playing our part in two vital ways: first, by using the power of our medium to extend the reach and facilitate debate on important issues that often don’t get the attention they deserve. This includes our pro-bono campaign with Conservation International which we’re incredibly proud to be helping amplify so that people worldwide, and not just the delegates of COP26, are invited to the conversation.

“Second, we’re making tangible changes to how we operate as a business to reduce our environmental impact. For example, earlier this year we developed a prototype for a new piece of street furniture that cleans the same amount of air as 20 trees, and we continue to use recycled materials to build our bus shelters and partner with charities like Trees for Cities to create greener cities.”

Clear Channel is a signatory to the UN Global Compact and has committed to be Carbon Net Zero by 2050 across its global operations in line with the Paris Agreement. The company is spearheading projects and initiatives to drive sustainability across its business operations and will be reporting on its progress in an upcoming ESG report.

Billboards Around the Nation Will Illuminate the Vast Contributions Afterschool Programs are Making to Students and Families in the Pandemic

Clear Channel Outdoor Supports the 22nd Annual Lights On Afterschool with National Billboard Campaign

Washington, D.C. – Afterschool supporters led by the Afterschool Alliance, the National League of Cities, and the National Summer Learning Association are joining with Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE: CCO) to launch a visibility campaign across more than 2,000 digital billboards around the country as part of this year’s Lights On Afterschool rally. The ads recognize afterschool programs for doing extraordinary work to support youth and families during the COVID-19 pandemic, from keeping students safe and learning while schools are closed, to addressing children’s social and emotional needs, to providing meals and other supports to students and families in need.

Now in its 22nd year, Lights On Afterschool is the only national rally for afterschool programs. Throughout October, and leading up to October 28, when the official Lights On Afterschool rally will take place, people across the country are joining in virtual and in-person afterschool program events focused on academics, science and technology, arts and music, sports and fitness, community service, and more. The events send the message that demand for afterschool programs is high, too many students are without programs, and the pandemic has increased the need.

In fact, the most recent America After 3PM household survey of more than 31,000 families, commissioned by the Afterschool Alliance, finds that for every child in an afterschool program in the United States, three more are waiting to get in. The families of 24.6 million children — more than ever before — are unable to access a program. Many report cost as a barrier. There are significant inequities, with Black and Latinx children most likely to be unable to access the afterschool programs their parents want for them.

Lights On Afterschool serves as a reminder that a powerful body of evidence demonstrates improvements in grades, school attendance, behavior, and more among children who participate in afterschool programs. Researchers have also found that students in afterschool programs are more engaged in school and excited about learning and develop critical work and life skills such as problem solving, teamwork, and communications.

Organized by the Afterschool Alliance, Lights On Afterschool includes virtual events organized by schools, 4-Hs, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, cities, parks, museums, community centers, and

others. Events this year will showcase the skills students gain and the talents they develop in their afterschool programs, which provide help with homework; skilled mentors; art, dance and music; healthy snacks and meals; computer programming; opportunities to think critically, collaborate and communicate with peers and adults; job and college readiness; sports and fitness activities; robotics; and opportunities for hands-on, team-based learning.

Clear Channel Outdoor is supporting Lights On Afterschool by donating some of its most prominent space to display afterschool messages on digital billboards, bus shelters, and poster spaces in 25 markets around the country throughout the month of October. Throughout the week of October 25, Clear Channel will feature afterschool messages on two jumbo billboards in New York City’s Times Square and will bathe Boston’s South Street Station in blue and yellow on October 28th in honor of Lights On Afterschool, complementing a similar lighting of the iconic Empire State Building that week. Supporters also will be lighting up local landmarks and buildings across the country to show their support for afterschool programs.

“Quality afterschool programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn, and give working parents peace of mind that their children are safe and supervised after the school day ends. Clear Channel Outdoor’s support helps recognize the tremendous work afterschool program leaders and staff members are doing to support kids and families during these challenging times.

Programs are rising to the moment, and we need to help them keep their lights on and doors open,” said Afterschool Alliance Executive Director Jodi Grant.

“The National League of Cities is proud to celebrate and uplift Lights On Afterschool. Local elected officials have long been champions of afterschool programming and the positive impact these programs have on young people, their families and communities every day,” said NLC CEO and Executive Director Clarence E. Anthony. “Over the last year, city leaders have deeply relied on these programs to feed children, keep them safe and active, provide learning and enrichment opportunities, and support working families. That’s why NLC is excited to partner with the Afterschool Alliance to encourage mayors to light up their city halls or city landmarks or issue a proclamation in honor of Lights On Afterschool.”

“Our nation’s afterschool and summer programs can change the trajectory of a young person’s life and spark passion, purpose and new possibilities for student growth, healing and engaged learning. The National Summer Learning Association is proud to celebrate Lights On Afterschool as these community programs are essential to America’s recovery and our children’s future,” said Aaron P. Dworkin, CEO, National Summer Learning Association.

The Afterschool Alliance is a nonprofit public awareness and advocacy organization working to ensure that all children and youth have access to quality afterschool programs. More information is available at

Clear Channel Outdoor, Foursquare Integration Makes In-Flight Ad Optimization Possible for Out-of-Home Campaigns

An Industry-First, the Integration Provides Brands More Frequent Data & Actionable Insights

New York, NY – Clear Channel Outdoor (CCO) (NYSE: CCO) and Foursquare, the most trusted, independent location data and technology platform, have partnered to provide brands with daily updated campaign performance metrics across both printed and now digital out-of-home (DOOH) displays as well. These reports are powered by Foursquare Attribution, which captures data that enables brands to see which consumers were exposed to CCO displays and made a subsequent visit to retail locations and other points of interest. By integrating this data with CCO’s time-stamped ads played reports (DOOH spot logs), brands can move toward optimizing their DOOH campaigns in-flight to reach their target audiences more efficiently than ever before.

The integration of CCO’s RADARProof® with Foursquare Attribution gives CCO customers access to a daily summary of impressions, conversions and incremental lift for offline visitation. As a result, brands can now understand the impact of their campaigns in a timelier manner and leverage insights to improve their DOOH media strategies. Insights provided to brands via this new solution include an ad’s performance by geography, time of day, demographics and historical visitations. With this evolved methodology, marketers can measure DOOH alongside all other channels on an omnichannel media plan, enabling them to understand and compare performance across all channels in one reporting dashboard.

CCO and Foursquare’s new partnership aligns with a shift in DOOH attribution measurement. The collaboration helps advertisers to accurately measure the impact of their DOOH advertising and leverage actionable reporting to optimize the campaign in-flight. Foursquare’s solution enables CCO customers to align the exposure data when the DOOH ad runs in near real-time, overcoming one of the biggest challenges DOOH exposure and attribution face when attempting to report frequent insights. And by connecting with Foursquare, this information can be provided to brands daily, instead of waiting until the campaign ends.

“Our priority is to continue innovating solutions for our brand partners so they can reach their target audiences and generate the outcomes they’re striving for with their out-of-home campaigns,” said Dan Levi, EVP & CMO, CCO. “Our partnership with Foursquare represents another industry first for out-of-home by providing advertisers more frequent updates and insights on their DOOH campaigns while they’re in flight for enhanced optimization. By empowering brands with timely updates to improve the effectiveness of their campaigns, we’re moving toward further integrating out-of-home audiences and results into digitally led programs.”

“Foursquare has automated the integration of Clear Channel Outdoor’s proof-of-play/spot logs into Attribution in order to evaluate ad exposures on a daily basis to reveal who saw an ad, where and at what time of day. We do this by leveraging granular data points from our SDK and our owned/operated panel of location data,” said Josh Cohen, SVP of Product at Foursquare. “Using our unique and accurate Attribution methodology, Foursquare can surface incremental lift driven by the campaign, which is provided to CCO’s clients and updated daily within the Attribution user interface.”

Foursquare’s unique DOOH attribution methodology delivers quick and accurate results in an easy-to-use dashboard, enabling advertisers to make in-flight optimizations and ensure successful campaign performance no matter where their DOOH media is running.

National Summer Learning Association Kick-starts Summer of ‘Game Building’ to Keep Kids Learning

Clear Channel Outdoor & Nintendo of America Support NSLA’s Nationwide Digital Billboard Campaign to Help Parents Prevent the ‘Summer Slide’ and Reclaim the Joy of Learning

New York, New York—Today in a coast-to-coast kick off to National Summer Learning Week (July 12-16), the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA), the nation’s only organization dedicated solely to ensuring accessible learning opportunities for children, took over all Clear Channel Outdoor nationwide digital billboard displays, featuring the Game Builder Garage game for the Nintendo Switch system. The new outdoor campaign presents a message calling on parents and students alike to reclaim the joy of summer and learning at – a new NSLA online destination, developed in response to COVID-19, to help families discover affordable local summer programs, summer meals, parent tips and a sea of resources to keep kids learning, earning, safe and healthy this season.

In tandem with this NSLA effort, Clear Channel Outdoor, a longtime NSLA partner, will support awareness for the project by running out-of-home messages today across all its 2,000 digital displays, and then, across these same displays nationwide throughout the summer. Together, the organizations will harness out-of-home media to elevate the importance of keeping all kids learning, healthy and safe during summer, while also directing families across the country to the local resources available to nurture the curiosity of their children.

NSLA incorporates the fun of learning after a pandemic year that has seen families across the country struggle with isolation, digital deserts, childcare, food insecurities and academic setbacks for some of the nation’s most vulnerable children. A large-scale study funded by The Wallace Foundation and published by the RAND Corporation demonstrated that students with high attendance in free, five to six-week, voluntary summer learning programs experienced educationally meaningful benefits in math and reading.

“This summer will be more important than ever in helping our nation’s young people recharge, heal, reconnect with peers, and rediscover the joy of learning,” said Aaron Dworkin, NSLA CEO. “We’re thrilled to kick off National Summer Learning Week with a huge splash across all Clear Channel Outdoor’s nationwide digital billboard displays to showcase Game Builder Garage and to students, parents and educators,” said Aaron P. Dworkin, CEO, National Summer Learning Association.

From July 12 to July 16, the NSLA is hosting National Summer Learning Week, a celebration dedicated to elevating the importance of keeping kids learning, active and engaged through the summer months. Nintendo of America is a presenting partner of the STEM Theme Day on July 12 of the week-long virtual event, using the Game Builder Garage game as a way to reach kids interested in learning the basics of coding, game design and more.

In Game Builder Garage, kids can go hands-on with interactive, step-by-step lessons that introduce the basics of visual game programming – and no prior experience is necessary! Once kids learn the basic skills from the in-game lessons, they will be able to create their own video games – from side-scrolling platformers, to kart racers, to space blasters – by connecting mysterious creatures in the game called Nodon. Game Builder Garage is designed to make learning about and building video games just as much fun as playing them.

In their constant quest for learning and educational equity, NSLA’s partnership with Nintendo of Americameets children at the intersection of their interests and their educational needs. The bright digital OOH creative features both NSLA and elements of Game Builder Garage to capture audiences out-of-home and drive parents and caregivers alike to, where they can locate resources in their area.

“We are proud to partner with NSLA and Nintendo of America in this powerfully visible way to help direct families to vital programs in their community to keep their kids learning all summer long, said Dan Levi, EVP & CMO, Clear Channel Outdoor and NSLA Board Member. “Never before has the need for educational equity been greater among our nation’s most disadvantaged youth. And locally supported community programs, with the support of NSLA, are making a significant difference in closing the achievement gap.”

“Project Yellow Light” Scholarship Contest Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary with New Class of Student Winners to Raise Awareness of Dangers of Texting and Driving

High School and College Students Will Have Winning TV, Radio and Billboards Displayed Nationally

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 22, 2021 – The Ad Council and Project Yellow Light announced the winners of the tenth annual Project Yellow Light scholarship competition, which involves students creating a TV, radio or billboard PSA to educate their peers about the dangers of distracted driving, specifically the dangers of messaging while driving. The winning PSAs will be showcased on June 28 on a digital billboard in New York City’s Times Square, in space donated by Clear Channel Outdoor.

Project Yellow Light was established by the family of Hunter Garner to honor his memory after his death in a car crash at age 16. In 2019, nine percent of drivers 15 to 20 years old involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted. This age group has the largest proportion of drivers who were distracted at the time of the fatal crashes.

“Project Yellow Light is delighted to be in its tenth year as a national scholarship competition,” said Julie Garner, founder of Project Yellow Light. “In 2011 we held the contest at one high school in Fredericksburg, VA with a handful of youth – today we reach thousands of students each year in high schools and colleges across the country.  None of this would’ve been possible without our amazing partners who have helped us every step along the way. Together we carry the important message to warn and protect our youth from the dangers of distracted driving. Congratulations to this year’s winners of the Hunter Garner scholarship and to all those who took part in this year’s contest.”

Since 2011, Project Yellow Light has partnered with the Ad Council to turn the winning submissions into PSAs that receive national exposure through 1,800 TV stations nationwide, iHeartMedia radio stations, and Clear Channel Outdoor’s nearly 2,000 digital displays.

“Over the last decade, Project Yellow Light has been driven forward through the Garner family’s dedication and leadership,” said Michelle Hillman, Ad Council Chief Campaign Development Officer. “Julie’s passion and her warmth for everyone she works with is one of the reasons why Project Yellow Light has continued to grow and make a lasting impact.

“The crash and fatality rate statistics around distracted driving are shocking. We must all do our part and save lives,” said WKRN-TV Nashville Emmy-winning journalist Alex Denis. “Put the phone down. No one should suffer the loss of a loved one due to a senseless act that remains so preventable.” 

Through the Stop the Texts. Stop the Wrecks. campaign, the Ad Council and NHTSA have been working together to prevent distracted driving since 2012.

Clear Channel Outdoor, Operation HOPE Partnership Promotes Black Businesses

New digital outdoor campaign supports the ‘1MBB’ initiative to build and support new and existing Black business owners

Los Angeles, CAClear Channel Outdoor (CCO) recently launched a new billboard campaign in partnership with Operation HOPE to support the ‘1MBB’ initiative. The campaign will run across select CCO digital billboards in Southern and Northern California to highlight 1MBB – an initiative to build one million black businesses by offering tools and guidance to new and current business owners to start or revitalize their operations. 1MBB is one of many programs offered by Operation HOPE – a nonprofit for-purpose organization working to disrupt poverty and empower inclusion for low and moderate-income youth and adults.

Today, there are only 2.6 million Black-owned businesses in the U.S., of which 96% have no employees. Black-owned businesses account for only 9.5% of the U.S. total. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of working Black business owners has fallen more than 40% – a far deeper drop than other racial groups. Operation HOPE’s 1MBB initiative is working to address and close this gap.

Using a combination of proven business development curriculum, a dedicated group of professional small business coaches and an expanded team of 1MBB volunteers who are industry experts in areas like e-commerce, legal services, accounting, marketing and public relations, Operation HOPE is working to quickly connect new and existing business owners to the training and technical assistance that will help them to succeed.

“At Operation HOPE, our mission is to expand economic opportunity, making free enterprise work for everyone. The 1MBB initiative is helping us to fulfill this mission for individuals that might not have access to the resources they need to succeed, but have always dreamed of starting a business,” said John Hope Bryant, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Operation HOPE. “It is critical that new and potential business owners are aware of the tools and guidance our organization can provide, and Clear Channel Outdoor is helping us to reach them through the powerful ability of digital outdoor advertising.”

“Clear Channel Outdoor is proud to support the 1MBB initiative by leveraging our outdoor advertising assets to raise awareness about the resources available to Black business owners and entrepreneurs working to start or enhance their business,” said Layne Lawson, vice president, public affairs, of Clear Channel Outdoor-Los Angeles. “We recognize the importance of spreading the message on critical initiatives like the one Operation HOPE is spearheading and we are honored to provide the resources needed to do just this.”

The campaign was launched in April and is ongoing.

Rockbot, Clear Channel Airports Partnership Delivers Top TV Networks & Original Local Video Content To Air Travelers

Rockbot Re-imagines the Traveler Experience and Fills the Video Content Void Left by Exiting CNN Airport TV Network

Oakland, CARockbot, the company that created the revolutionary smart music and TV platform for businesses, is expanding into airports and teaming with Clear Channel Airports (CCA), the leading airport media provider in the U.S. In airports where CCA was providing video content on in-airport TV networks, Rockbot replaces CNN’s now shuttered news format with a TV experience to inform, inspire, and entertain travelers with sports, news, entertainment, and lifestyle content from leading brands all localized to each city. In addition, Rockbot’s platform gives airports a platform to enhance their traveler experience with music, audio messaging and digital signage.

The new Rockbot Airport TV Network began its first wave of rollouts to US airports, including Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Oakland International Airport (OAK), St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL), Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY), and is in the process of expanding into others. As travel restrictions are eased and lifted, airlines are seeing a huge increase in ticket sales. With 1.9 million U.S. passengers screened on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, the TSA has indicated this is just the start of a busy summer travel season.

“Rockbot’s Airport Media Network reimagines the traveler experience by bringing them high-quality entertainment and news from the leading content brands. For example, the network features live stock market and business coverage from Bloomberg, which is the leader in business news and a perfect fit for the airport audience,” notes Garrett Dodge, CEO, Rockbot. “In addition, the network delivers real-time cloud-based digital signage to give airports a streamlined ability to message their travelers and prompt their concession partners. Just as air travel is picking up again, we have created a modernized TV environment for airports, advertisers and travelers that will forever elevate the industry standard.”

Since 2013 Rockbot has been providing streaming media to airports and their concession partners. The new Airport TV network adds to the existing range of services offered to airports and gives them a seamless transition from the previous vendor.

“After vetting a number of content providers for gate hold news and entertainment, we selected Rockbot as our partner,” said John Moyer, SVP, Development, Clear Channel Airports. “They’ve transitioned in quickly, seamlessly and in a user-friendly way delivering custom local and national content, as well as vital airport partner messaging to these networks. We look forward to working with them across these in-airport TV networks.”
