    HISTORY

    One Day on Earth started in September of 2008 with the goal of creating a unique worldwide media event where thousands of participants would simultaneously film over a 24-hour period. The idea for the project was conceived while watching musicians from very different regions of the world collaborate on stage at the opening night of the 2008 World festival of Sacred Music. Their initial attempts to create music together were awkward, and it was clear that they had never collaborated prior to this moment. Eventually though, over the period of a couple minutes, what was disharmony became harmony, and a beautiful fusion of music came together for the first time. The moment inspired a similar vision for another universal form of communication—cinema.

    Since then One Day on Earth has grown steadily as a grassroots effort of international filmmakers dedicated to documenting the 24-hour period of October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10). In April 2010, prompted by interest from the United Nations and the international educational community, One Day on Earth moved to a social networking platform that could serve as the eventual sharing site for the entire 10.10.10 event.

    Our first media event on 10.10.10 was an amazing success. We created media with participants in every country of the world contributing. Over 60 non-profit organizations participated and we collectively created over 3000 hours of video.

    As we look forward to our 11.11.11 event this year, we are excited to see our community grow steadily with new participants everyday, many of whom are creative professionals, teachers, or employees of a non-profit charity. Together, we are creating the first truly worldwide document, where each contributor can be publicly acknowledged in an open forum. All are welcome to participate; the greater the quality and quantity of participation, the greater our impact on humanity.

    Sincerely
