On May 10 we are hosting a Pangea Day event at our home. If youa re in the area give me a buzz and come over.
You maybe asking what the heck is Pangea Day? Well, read on:
On May 10, 2008 – Pangea Day – people all over the world will come together to share a common experience: watching films made by the world for the world. We like to call it the first global campfire.
Pangea Day is a 4-hour live broadcast featuring powerful films, visionary speakers, and inspiring music that will reach millions through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Jehane Noujaim created Pangea Day after winning the prestigious TED Prize, which grants winners “one wish to change the world.”
Jehane’s wish: “To bring the world together through the power of film. The first step toward world peace is to meet the other.”
Pangea is the name of the landmass that existed 250 million years ago before it split into separate continents. It’s a reminder that what now appears divided was once whole.
The power of Pangea Day lies in the thousands of self-organized events, hosted by people just like you! To see the growing list of Friends of Pangea Day events, visit www.pangeaday.org and click on “host an event”.
