Daily Dose Pick: One Day on Earth


An ambitious video time-capsule project, One Day on Earth calls on people from around the globe to document the dizzying diversity of life on our planet on October 10, 2010.

With the support of the UN Development Program, professional filmmakers are joining villagers, artists, activists, students, scientists, and soldiers from nearly 200 countries in creating video portraits to share, educate, and inspire. There’s a searchable web archive and a feature documentary in the works, and participation is free and open to all — so start thinking about what you’d like to add to the mix.

Visit the One Day on Earth website to learn more, get started on your own contribution, and keep up with the the project on Facebook.
