One Day on Earth: Documenting the World’s Story

One Day on Earth is pretty much the coolest thing ever. It’s kind of exciting. Basically, it’s an organization made up of multiple NPOs and other companies, photographers, videographers, and just normal people like you and me taking a look at what’s going on all in one day.

Here’s their site description:

On November 11th, 11.11.11, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the second annual global day of media creation called One Day on Earth. Together, we will create a shared archive and a film.

Founded in 2008, One Day on Earth’s first media creation event occurred on 10.10.10. The collaboration was the first ever simultaneous filming event occurring in every country of the world. It created a unique geo-tagged video archive as well as an upcoming feature film.

Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one day. We invite you to join our international community of thousands of filmmakers, hundreds of schools, and dozens of non-profits, and contribute to this unique global mosaic. One Day on Earth is a community that not only watches, but participates.

They have a trailer from last year’s One Day on Earth video (10/10/10):

One Day on Earth is a great way to bring everyone in the world together for one day. The births, the traffic incidents, the sunrises and sunsets, the every day life of everyone on Earth. It’s a beautiful way to remind us that we’re all people living on the same planet going about our lives. That’s some unifying stuff!
