How the campaign will work
By adding your photo you are becoming a part of a national people power movement petitioning the government to give water to the Murray Darling environment first.
We are calling for as many people as possible to participate in helping to create the largest every Human River Wave. This will connect the the national and international community to save our nations largest river.
Let it Flow revolves around the ancient symbol for a river made into a simple action, that anyone can create: All you need is one (or two?) active arm(s) and a big smile! and then create a wave.
To bring this campaign to life we ask you to take photos of your friend, work colleagues and family doing the wave and upload it to our Flickr site.
Movies will be created
We then ask if you can upload the images to our this Flickr group and through the magic of digital editing we create a movie that will join everyone together to create the longest every continuous river wave, it could run for every, you never know!
YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Flickr will be used to spread the message
We hope that the press will follow us , so if you are involved or connected to the media please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
Poster will also be created:
The photos are then assembled into a gigantic poster and presented to the Government as a unified show of support to save our Murray Darling System.
