TckTckTck, a global alliance of more than 200 nonprofit organizations, has announced a new digital technology created in partnership with OneWorld UK that combines "deep zoom" with a social media uploader so people can create collaborative mosaic images online. The first image is called mosaic:EARTH and it was launched in tandem with debut of "HARMONY: A New Way of Looking at our World," a film inspired by the Prince of Wales. Here it is!
Uploading takes just a second and doesn't require registration. You just click the "Tell the World' button, select an image, add a description, and click the big orange "FINISH" button. For a limited time, participants in the United States can also enter to win a special pre-loaded HARMONY iPad that includes digital books, apps for green living, photos and more.
For those who want to do more than talk, the mosaic widget has a link to the Tck Action website which features dozens of current action campaigns that address a wide variety of social and environmental causes — from poverty alleviation through sustainable agriculture to wildlife conservation and clean energy initiatives. Here's a list of current featured campaigns:
