Corporate Social Responsibility – Pangea Day 10 May 2008

13 02 2008

What is Pangea Day? 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, differences, and conflict, its easy to lose sight of what we all have in common.  Pangea Day seeks to overcome that – to help people see themselves in others – through the power of film. On 10 May 2008, Pangea Day sites in Cairo, Dharamsala, Kigali, London, New York City, Ramallah, Rio de Janeiro, and Tel Aviv will be videoconferenced live to produce a 4 hour programme of powerful films, visionary speakers, and uplifting music.  The programme will be broadcast live to the world through the internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones. Of course, movies alone can’t change the world.  But the people who watch them can.  So following 10 May 2008, Pangea Day organisers will facilitate community-building  activities around the world by connecting inspired viewers with numerous organisations which are already doing groundbreaking work.
