The OKRE Big List is being created in response to feedback from programme makers saying they would appreciate an insight into the hot topics and trends that charities will be focusing on. 

Announced today at the OKRE Summit, The OKRE Big List is a unique online hub, showcasing the upcoming priorities of charities working in areas such as migration, poverty, climate change and mental health. 

What does the list do?

The list provides a place for entertainment producers and commissioners to find out what charities will be focusing on over the next few years, via short films, audio and brief and to-the-point descriptions.

Aradhna Tayal, Director of the OKRE Summit, said:

“We’ve been working with some incredible charities, including The Global Fund, the International Rescue Committee, One, Save the Children and Water Aid to understand where they will be prioritising their work over the next two years – from understanding how working with communities most at risk of HIV/AIDS could help avert the next pandemic to the gender inequalities caused by climate crisis.”

"The OKRE Big List is a starting point to engage in cross-sector dialogue. It provides inspiration and innovation as well as a tangible approach towards discovering meaningful partnerships and content."
