Share video content with Go Construct

Generation Z watch an average of 68 videos a day and 80% of them say that YouTube has helped them to become more knowledgeable about something. Video is a powerful and immediate way to share inspiring messages and we’re always looking for new content to engage Go Construct’s audiences.

Take a look through the list below to find easy ideas for short video content that you can easily create and share with us, to help show the diverse opportunities in our sector and inspire more people to join.

You can support Go Construct by:

  • Sharing industry videos with Go Construct on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube
  • Tagging @GoConstructUK in your social posts
  • Emailing videos to info@goconstruct.org using ‘Go Construct content’ as the subject line. For large files, or to send multiple videos, consider using WeTransfer to send them over.

We know that not everyone has the time or ability to edit video content, but don’t let that stop you from recording or sharing. Feel free to send over unedited video footage by email and we can pull out clips to share on our channels.
