Organisers of One Day On Earth found this blog and contacted me to participate in their project. They are asking individuals and organisations to film the human experience in every country in the world over a 24 hour period on 10/10/10 to present a global view of the community of this earth.
They contacted me ages ago and I thought, yeah, great and promptly put it on the back burner until I had time to deal with it – namely TODAY!
I’m ashamed because I should have been promoting this more, so this is my last minute attempt to begin to spread the word about this amazing project and maybe even get some of you hooked on becoming part of it… I know it’s a bit last minute, but hey, that’s all part of what life’s like here in Monte so…
Here’s some video’s explaining more about this exciting global collaboration:
Tonight we began to form a plan of what to film. It will likely revolve around water, the use & abuse of it in this supposed “eco state” of Montenegro and the wonderful ways we reduce, reuse and recycle this precious resource at our Eco Camp.
Mainly due to a defunct sprinkler system (probably partly due to ridiculously high water pressure) water was haemorrhaging from our pipes at our house above Herceg Novi for 5 days non-stop. Our water bill for last month was nearly 100 euros!!! (Our total bills – power, water, ADSL & phone – for the month are normally around 85 euros combined in total!). The hideous truth is that last month in this house we used more than twice as much water than we have used on the campsite in the past 4 months – we have a 45,000 litre water tank on the site which was filled in June and is still not empty… you do the math.
Currently I am the only individual representing this beautiful country – get involved if you can…
