On October 10, 2010 (10.10.10), people in every country on the planet recorded important issues in their lives over a 24-hour period, and contributed to the largest participatory media event in history. This extraordinary project, One Day on Earth, brought together over 3000 hours of footage by documentary filmmakers, students and other inspired people.
The One Day on Earth team partnered with 60 non-profits and the United Nation to locate collaborators and help focus the film on raising awareness for relevant local issues. They created toolkits for media literacy and provided them to teachers in 62 countries to help new filmmakers get involved. â€œThis initiative is to get a better understanding about the global commuity,” said executive producter Brandon Litman. “So we wanted to make sure we created a community,” which led the team to design a social network to help participants connect.
