One Day on Earth is a worldwide media project, in which thousands of filmmakers, educators, and journalists in every country of the world will collectively document the 24-hour period of October 10th, 2010.
To facilitate student participation, we have created educational toolkits covering the basics of digital media production. Toolkits include lesson plans, videos, slide shows and a number of subject-based project ideas.
thanks for telling us! I posted about this a few months back in our videos and really can't wait to follow what's happening. I'll be on a train going across Canada and WILL take my photos/videos. Should be unique.
1) How the UN will help you get your footage online (in areas with
unreliable internet connection)
2) More details on uploads
3) Ways to collaborate / share ideas

5) Ways you can help!
1. UN will help!
In countries where uploading video files are difficult, the UN has offered
to SHIP your videos to One Day on Earth (DVD or other data storage). Please
fill out the following form to see if your region is supported for footage
transport. In all cases, you will be responsible for delivering your footage
to the regional office (info to be provided later). http://www.onedayonearth.org/page/un-footage-transport-request
2. You will be able to upload your videos after 10/10/10 until
10 November 2010. We will have an uploader on our homepage during
If you are still undecided and looking for ideas of what to document on
10/10/10, consider visiting our creative collaboration groups or you can
also support one of our over 50 participating charitable organizations by
answering one of their "Calls to Action."
Here is the last webcast before the video event 10/10/10. I'll be filming my departure from beautiful Vancouver and trip across Canada on that day! Then, I'll edit on the train and submit here and to the onedayonearth guys.....
What are you going to film? Let's catalog human experience on one day in time.
Here is my entry into the One Day On Earth event documenting 10.10.10 . We visited Granville Island in Vancouver and walked back into the downtown (to visit the Korean market!). Stopped for a beer and sat outside. A band, Yes, Nice was playing across the street. I set my newly purchased Flip Ultra HD video recorder on the ledge and recorded a street scene on Robson Ave. A sample of a typical Sunday in Vancouver. Sunny Sunday.
