DUGUT VISION:

“If we want to solve the world’s problems, we must find a way to connect and work together. DuGut introduces a platform that aims to connect, raise awareness to change behavior and take real-life sustainable actions!”

We all want to live well. Why would we not? Wanting to do so is only human, after all. There’s just one problem: Conspicuous consumption, which is often confused with living well and is environmentally unsustainable.

The younger generations believe that they can change the world… SO DO WE!

This once-in-a-generation chance to build a better future will propel the concept of ‘conscious living’ to the top of everyone’s agenda, with Millennials and Gen-Z driving the rally. For Gen-Z, purpose is key. We truly believe that Gen-Z is going to build the foundation for a whole new world economy where future generations will benefit from a better social system supported by the power of commerce. Catalyzing their efforts is the purpose of The DuGut Movement

DUGUT CONTENT STUDIO:

“We believe that if we want everybody to use the DuGut App, it must be easy accessible, fun and engaging!”

“We believe that the key to success is creating positive and shareable content that creates a dialogue but also provides proof that we have seen these problems with our own eyes, because we were there! ”

“We have seen the impact our real-life actions have had ourselves and documented everything at the source. Additionally, our partner teams on the ground that do these actions record every micro action we take! ”

We have built an extensive, ever growing footage library. We have also done a ton of research and we continue to do that on a daily base. With that content, we are currently producing several formats of videos on Instagram and Tik Tok, including our “FACT Campaign”, a funny approach about problems and solutions and “Tech 4Good”, specially focused on innovative sustainable solutions.

DuGut has got its own in-house content production teams that can develop everything that is necessary in our Gamified Sustainability Journeys. In addition to all our field (camera) equipment, including action cams and drones, we have a full equipped film and post production studio including graphic design, 3-D and game development, a green screen film set, and a sound studio.

Our team is ready to create your campaign! If you are a Brand that want to reach conscious consumers, or you want to create exposure for your cause? Contact us, and let’s make it happen…
