One Day on Earth - 10.10.2010

On 10 October 2010, members of the Cyprus Network for Youth Development joined CCMC and thousands of filmmakers from over 190 countries to participate in the UN's "One Day on Earth" project, which captured an unprecedented global video snapshot of a single 24-hour period. Participants, ranging from teenagers with mobile phones to Academy-Award nominated filmmakers equipped with the latest technology, filmed the world from their own perspectives. In Cyprus, UNDP-ACT provided participants with HD cameras and guided access to the Nicosia airport, where filming took place. The ten young participants discussed their ten reasons Cypriots should live together, wrote them on pieces of paper and secured them in a Time Capsule. They buried the Capsule and agreed to return to the spot in ten years on 10/10/2020 to revisit their reasons and see if any of them had become reality in Cyprus in the future.
