Lots of interesting things happening this week! Getting final ideas together this week, and the production managers are meeting up today (Tuesday) to do some final annualizing ‘of how and what’ so that we can hopefully start filming next week!
This is what the production managers have discused and come up with for our script:
“””Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface, and it’s needed for every living thing. However, 2.5 billion lack access to safe and drinkable water. This number will keep increasing if we don’t do anything about it.
Likewise, there are many organizations that aim to solve these problems. However there is little change that is noticeable to the outer world. This is what the, non-profit organization, International Water Foundation aims to improve through it’s objectives, which include, but are not limited to;
- Connecting these existing organizations in an online network, in order to make a bigger impact on the water issues around the world.
- Collecting funds to help source research projects about desalination.
- The founder Francois Bruley wants to raise awareness about the water issues.
- Raising funds to finance the IWF through the 2-for-2-method; someone donates 2 dollars and tells 2 other people about the IWF.
We are hoping that through answering the questions WHO?, WHY? And HOW? The IWF can improve its current situation in order to reach it’s goals.
We are hoping to create a network that combines existing clubs/teams, such Local youth groups, Schools/Uni clubs, and sports clubs.
IWF can then have the opportunity to connect those who have a passion for water and want to make a change.
We aim to use crowdsourcing find existing groups, shape them and enable them to help the IWF reach its goals. We are hoping to approach these existing groups through email since it is a formal way of communicating. After contacting the group’s, Facebook will be the main tool of communication and creating a functional group structure where everyone can communicate with one another. IWF should maintain an active Facebook page in order to get people involved in their cause.
We are targeting the youth because they are the future, and they are more active in making a change. We are focusing mainly on existing local groups because its easier to find and connect them than approaching individuals and creating a network. However, at the same time it is also world wide due to the accessibility of Facebook. We will work together with university programs to come up with innovative and creative approaches that stand out to help IWF reach its objectives.”””
This script will be finalized Wednesday on the 14th of October.
So keep a look out for our reflection this week, It will include our final script, where it will ‘most likely be filmed and other interesting information we have gathered over the week. Will be worth your while to read it!
Have a Wonderfull day!
