10.10.10 or One Day on Earth

Join the One Day on Earth movement and participate on 10/10/2010.

This is a global 'multi-platform participatory media project' event where everyday people, including students and teachers, are encouraged to document and record a story of shared human experience over a 24-hour period. The aim is to capture the diversity of life and culture on this planet on a particular day, 10th October, 2010 (10.10.10).
"One Day on Earth is a documentary and new media project about the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one 24-hour period on Earth."

The organisers of One Day on Earth anticipate that capturing and sharing stories over 24 hours will utilise the power of the participatory culture, raise awareness and "foster a greater sense of global empathy and, ultimately, action towards a more sustainable and equitable planet."

Educational digital media toolkits will be available to educators who register onsite.

The toolkit will contain videos, slideshows and PDFs to support students in brainstorming and basic film/video concepts as well as
curricula and lesson plans to support participation as photographers, filmmakers, journalists and world citizens.
