Hello, Nusrat, Yes I would love to participate. I am preparing a small script a short documentary on UNESCO's freedom of information activities in Liberia. I will start at the Liberia Media Center, and will stop by a couple of radio stations that I will be working with, to highlight the media capacity/support programs that we are involved with.
My only question is, does the raw footage come to 15 minutes or do you need 15 minutes of fully edited documentary?
Thanks in advance for your clarification.
Sorry! Nusrat. My schedule (of filming adaptation practice) has been canceled, as the place is a remote island and , I was planning to go there for my official task! I am going to shoot other activities. I am confused, you can suggest me in this regard.
I tried to 'find a grop' from odoe home page; but except in Bhutan, Nepal, Bangla Desh, I could not find any environmental group taking part in odoe in India. However, I will continue my 68th awareness workshop for young school/college minds to coincide with 11/11/11. I am also on to a few other social welfare awareness programs; have a look at the following links:
I hope the links work. If you find time, please search my name in google and have a look at some of my other concerns for a better society. Do not be surprised if you find that some of them have been hacked - ignore them.
Will keep you informed of 11/11/11 event.
Best Wishes to all in the loop. Have a great ONE DAY ON EARTH on 11/11/11. Vasanthkumar Mysoremath Mysore, The Heritage City, India
Merci beaucoup de vous rencontrer pour les besoins d'un jour sur terre prévu le 11/11/11. Je pense que ça sera l'occasion pour tous les participants de relever le défi de la communication électronique à travers les sites http://www.onedayonearth.org et tthp:vimeo.com/26378195. Bonne réception.
Hi Nusrat, yes, but I'm having some problems in that I'm not sure how to upload the information & photographs I want to submit. I'm doing an article on self-sufficiency in small communities with food security as a point of departure. In my particular case I have made this venture multi-faceted: the team that I used consists only of women, and all are from disadvantaged backgrounds. It also addresses problems such as the greenhouse effect, urban greening, soil erosion etc. I use a indigenous plants as carbon sinks and companion plants for pest control etc. All containers are recycled. Everything is organic- for optimal health of both people & environment. Due to lack of funding the project is on currently on ice, but I am working hard at changing that. I also give short seminars on nutrition, HIV Aids & food security, during which I give practical demonstrations & establish model 'mini' gardens. How/ where do I upload, and when? Am also struggling with internet connectivity being somewhat erratic...so need to perhaps do 'practise' run. Have tried adding you as friend, but nothing happens- can you do that from your side?
Yes, I am in touch with a school and a college in Mysore-The Heritage City in India, for creating awareness in the minds of youngsters about climate change, global warming and its impacts on 11/11/11 and on similar lines that I conducted events on 10/10/10.
On 11/11/11, the important thing that has to be impressed upon these young minds is that they must learn to live with nature, protect it from destruction, create greenery, keep their surroundings clean, not to waste the finite natural resources like fuel, water, air and to conserve them at grassroots level for the sake of their future and also their future generations. We should not exhaust all the available resources in this generation itself and this can only be done through protection and preservation.

Nusrat, thanks for checking in, and YES! I did a ton of filming on my trip to South America last year. Unfortunately everything I documented, Photos, video, and writing as stolen during a layover in Bogota, and I ended up spending a few days in Columbia.... Therefore I will not be able to participate. Next time, maybe.. Thanks
Hello Nusrat, Nice to meet you through odoe!
Yes I will be filming adaptation practices(afforestation, FFF model, climate resilient agriculture) along the coast of Bangladesh. BTW, what you are doing? I wonder, whether we can work togather!
Nice to know that you know Bengali too.
