Land Rover brings Nature to London for Mental Health Awareness Week

May 17, 2022

For Mental Health Awareness Week 2022, Land Rover launched immersive ‘Live Streams’ on Ocean Outdoor’s digital screens to raise awareness of the importance of nature in improving mental wellbeing.

Research from Exeter University suggests that 40% of the working population fail to spend the recommended two hours minimum a week in nature to support their mental health.* The digital screens broadcast live scenes from nature, creating windows into green spaces that are closer than you think.
The screens were purposefully placed at both Westfield retail and leisure centres in London – high density, urban locations, providing passers-by with a sensory experience to help them escape the city for a few moments. The live broadcasts ran from 9am – 4pm over the weekend (May 14 – May 15).

To make the experience truly immersive, a directional sound shower played the calming natural sounds of a running stream, whilst a QR code directed the public to an interactive map showing where they could find the actual stream or other green spaces near them. The campaign was supported by social, driving people to an interactive map.

The initiative won first prize in the Ocean’s annual digital creative competition, receiving £100,000 of free media.

Our competition judges liked the insight and the tie into mental wellbeing. This campaign encourages local engagement but in a way that isn’t overtly selling. It’s a simple, effective concept with an important message.”

Ocean head of marketing and events Helen Haines

For us, there's always been a natural connection between Land Rover and the great outdoors. When we found the research linking time spent in nature with mental health, we saw a relevant space for Land Rover to help promote.”
