One Day On Earth

On Sunday, October 10 (10.10.10) Autism Speaks will be participating in a global event, known as One Day On Earth.  Across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the largest participatory media event in history.

Autism Speaks needs you! Help us show the world what living with autism is all about. Share the joys, frustrations and victories that you and your loved ones experience by filming a day in your life on October 10, 2010.

One Day On Earth is creating an online community, shared archive and film. With your help, One Day On Earth will showcase the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy and triumph that occur in one day.

What happens in a day can make a huge difference. Let’s share and show the world! Upload your footage to the Autism Speaks profile on the One Day On Earth site.

Autism Speaks looks forward to partnering in this exciting project with World Wildlife Federation, American Red Cross, United Nations Development Programme, Vimeo, Creative Visions Foundation, and many others.

Get involved and join the Autism Speaks Page!

    Great idea for Autism Speaks to get involved with the One Day On Earth project. However, we as a society need to continue to make some major strides towards people with disabilities. I think you folks at Autism Speaks would be amazed at UW-Whitewater’s track record on advocacy and awareness for people with disabilities.

    To me that’s what sets UW-Whitewater apart from other schools, even more so than our great athletic success and our great education and business(such as accounting, as I will tell you its one of the tops in the country) programs.

    Brilliant idea to share a day in the life of people who have autism, their families and loved ones. This will enhance awareness of issues relating to autism, their impact and influence on family dynamics, and help to celebrate the lives of the people we love unconditionally. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of the global community.
