10 10 10 – Day for Climate Action, and global video project

On October 10th, there will be a global day for climate action. Coincidentally enough, there will be a project, sponsored by  the United Nations, and Vimeo, the competitor to YouTube that is used by many independent film makers because it doesn’t impose limits on run time of your project, to document the planet.

Here’s the background on the global day for climate action:

Organizers are calling for a global work party on 10/10/10 (October 10th) and inviting people from all over the world to participate in local energy solutions. Thousands of people have already signed up. Living on Earth gives an overview of the project.

And here’s the info on the global video project. Tie them together and get outside and do some Good For the Hood, whether in a city or Hood Canal!

With the support of the United Nations, and dozens of non-profits around the world we are helping to create a shared global archive of video representing EVERY country in the world in one day… all shot on 10/10/10.

The One Day on Earth team is working closely with thousands of filmmakers, educators, and inspired individuals participating as part of their collaborative community: onedayonearth.org

Not only will fellow Vimeians have access to the shared archive, but we will also be able to edit our own “One Day on Earth” (non-commercial & with credit). Additionally, the One Day on Earth team will create a feature film cut that promises to represent EVERY country in the world.

You must participate to download from the archive. Join us!
