HRH The Prince of Wales has released his latest book, Harmony, detailing a new approach to understanding the world—and living in it.
In an effort to bring these ideas to the largest audience possible, a film, inspired by the book and sharing the same name, will air on NBC this Friday. In addition, TckTckTck is launching mosaic:EARTH, a cutting edge collaborative media project that unites thousands of photos and video messages into one image of the Earth as seen from space.
The goal, is to produce the first visualization of the global sustainability movement. Julie Bergman Sender and Stuart Sender, the filmmakers who created the Harmony film, explained:
The people we meet in Harmony are visionary thinkers and doers who are working to solve our greatest environmental and social problems in ways that make sense, and can impact the day-to-day lives of all of us...our collaboration with TckTckTck on the mosaic:EARTH call-to-action is a great example of how we can translate the message of the movie into real actions and results.
mosaic:EARTH is an online media tool that is powered by OneWorld UK's "deep zoom" technology. The image it produces consists of thousands of "tiles," each containing a photo, video or message. Viewers can zoom in to see individual tiles and upload their own.
The project has been made possible by partnerships with a diverse group of action campaigns including Sierra Club, Oxfam International, 10:10 Global, ClimateCounts, WWF International, Suzuki Foundation, Forest Ethics, Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP), Germanwatch, LiveEarth, Post Carbon Institute, Rainforest Action Network, and Save Tigers Now with WWF and Leonardo DiCaprio, among others.
