Take a day to celebrate Denver. Observe it, document it, determine what actions should be taken for the city's future over the next few decades. Join hundreds of filmmakers, non-profit organizations, and countless inspired citizens on April 26th as they come together to capture the essence of the city—because it's totally one of the coolest places to live. Denver combines its endless access to nature and the city life in one super-comfortable package.
And now everyone is invited to make a difference in the city's future. One Day On Earth is a national campaign that has been around since 2008, to celebrate the planet and create a collaborative movement. Over the course of 24 hours, participants will film their cities. They will interview each city's residents and gather from the people where they desire to see the city's future.
“Your Day. Your City. Your Future.” People ask the campaign 'Why focus on cities?' The answer is that, because the majority of the world's population reside in cities, efforts toward future sustainability needs to tackle urban lifestyles and how to cater to metro areas accordingly.
10 other cities are currently registered to participate this April:
- Los Angeles
- Lower Rio Grande Valley
- New Orleans
- New York
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- Twin Cities
People are encouraged to sign up and share with friends. Collected footage will be edited together for a television series covering the future of America's cities. Additionally, local media partners will showcase the most powerful and inspiring footage captured.
The 10 questions One Day asks their visual investigators are:
- Why are you in your city?
- What do you love about your city?
- What's the best thing happening in your city today?
- What are your city's biggest challenges?
- Who is your city not serving?
- What is the worst thing that could happen to your city?
- What are the solutions that your city needs to implement?
- How are people changing the future of your city?
- What do you hope for your city in the next 20 years?
- Ask your own question.
Questions may serve interviews, but participants are encouraged to seek answers through a visual lens. Show the world concrete examples of how Denver specifically manages its problems and prepares for its future.
