Our Story

A few days after the 9/11 attacks, a team from Adforum launched a call “it’s our business to help” encouraging the advertising community to stand up against terrorism. Trade press, websites, associations and award organisers shared the call, uniting the industry around this cause. Creatives from over 30 countries quickly responded, offering their talent. Hundreds of creative pieces and tributes to the heroes and victims were shared.

The first exhibition of these campaigns took place at the Paris Advertising Week in November 2001, and during a New York trade event in December 2001. Thanks to the support of Bernard Brochand, the Deputy Mayor of Cannes, this was followed by the Cannes International Advertising Festival, in June 2002.

Since then, the call-for-action has become an international non-profit organisation managed by a team of volunteers, with the financial support of major players in the advertising industry. ACT Responsible has developed initiatives and partnerships with agencies, trade organisations, media, institutions and associations.
