WPP partnered with Cannes Lions to offer people who work for WPP complimentary access to the virtual event and Lions membership for the year.

At a time when more communities around the world are desperately asking for help, brands with a clear purpose have the opportunity to get involved and change lives. Creativity gives that purpose a chance to make a massive impact on people, economies and the planet. That is the power and potential of creative transformation.
