The whole project will be documented, publicized, and shared globally through a variety of communications mediums developed by our award-winning filmmaker and media team, including a full-length documentary, social impact film shorts, a social media presence combined with other notable shared-value campaigns and sports outreach and training mediums, as well as traditional international press coverage.
Outreach is a continuous theme of the project, while the EPF team prepares for their challenge and for when it is done, at which point players and partner organisations will deliver a series of community outreach events to raise awareness about the project and its overall aims.
