I love “fun” dates. Today, though, instead of the world ending, or catastrophe happening, people all over the world are celebrating “One Day on Earth”.
From their website: It’s October 10, 2010 (10.10.10), across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens are recording the human experience over a 24-hour period and contributing their voice to the largest participatory media event in history. Founded in 2008, ONE DAY ON EARTH is creating an online community, shared archive, and film. Together, we will showcase the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occur in one day.
I can’t wait to see what is uploaded and I’m really really looking forward to sharing the kid-appropriate content with my class. It’s hard to talk global when they think the world ends at the edge of their neighborhood and I’m extremely excited to see where this takes us.
Personally, I just can’t wait to see what 10.10.10 was like for bazillions of other people.
