Pangea Day: an introduction

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in Odds & Sods

What is Pangea Day?  according to their web site:

Pangea
day taps the power of film to strengthen tolerance and compassion while
uniting millions of people to build a better future.

In a world
where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict,
it’s easy to lose sight of what we all have in commond.  Pangea Day
seeks to overcome that – to help people see themselves in others-
through the power of film.

On May 10, 2008 – Pangea Day – sites
in New York City, Rio, London, Dharamsala, Cairo, Jerusalem, and Kigali
will be videoconferenced live to produce a 4-hour program of powerful
films, visionary speakers and uplifting music.

The program will be broadcast live to the world through the internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.

Of
course, movies can’t change the world.  But the people who watch them
can.  So following May 10,2008, Pangea Day organizers will facilitate
community-building activities around the world by connecting inspired
viewers with numberous organizations which are already doing
groundbreaking work.

Be sure to watch the embedded video near the start of the Tangler Discussion for a powerful introduction to the concept!
