Sharing great photos and stories

Taking a great photo of your Global Earth Exchange

The best photos are the ones that show (1) the people at your event, (2) the gift of beauty/work of art you created, and (3) enough of your place to indicate how it’s hurt. If you can’t get all three of these elements into your photo, include as many as you can. Please send high resolution landscape-style (horizontal) photos. We prefer the size of the image to be less than 2Mb.

Telling your story

People want to know what happened at your Global Earth Exchange! Here’s some information you might share:

  • why you chose this particular place
  • who participated
  • what you did
  • how people felt about the experience
  • what kind of gift you made for your place

You can tell your story as a poem, as a collection of quotes from participants… whatever feels right.

Thank you for joining the world and Daring to Bear Witness to the Earth!
