Cameron Diaz Encourages Global Film Screenings on Pangea Day, May 10

We all know and love Cameron for her commitment to green. So her support of TED's Pangea Day doesn't come as a surprise. This Saturday, May 10, four full hours of free user-generated films and TED-style short talks from scientists, filmmakers, and global visionaries will air internationally on TV and online. Because the day is about celebrating our common humanity and opening up a global dialogue, citizens of the world are encouraged to host or find a screening to watch with family, friends and neighbors.

If ever you needed an excuse to spend a Saturday guiltlessly chilled out in front of the 'tube, this is it. But be prepared to think. The programming will cover issues ranging from war and terrorism to human rights and climate change. You may even be inspired to take action afterwards. Like the Pangea website says, "Films can't change the world. But the people who watch them can." Find out how to take part here.
