LIFEconnect 2012 Camera Relay
12 July 2012 Watford, United Kingdom [Andrew Willis, tedNEWS] For seven weeks the Olympic torch has been travelling around the United Kingdom. Along the relay route communities have come together to celebrate the individuals carrying the torch. When the flame is lit at the opening ceremony on the 27th July attention will be focused on the elite athletes and national superstars. Until then, the torch is passed on from one local hero to another for 70 days, all of them fulfilling a dream.
LIFEconnect decided to get involved and celebrate the online community by arranging a “Torch Relay”. A camera was passed around and people from different parts of the country were asked to join the relay. As the country celebrates its Olympic dream and looks past it towards its uncertain future, we asked each person to record their greatest hope and greatest fear. Each participant recorded a short message and some of them have been posted on www.lifeconnect.org.uk.
Every Friday a new message from a different part of the country is posted online and the online community has the opportunity to connect, respond and share. We support each other’s dreams and help each other face their fears. We explore life together online.
LIFEconnect is an online community, a place where people can feel at home and share what is important to them in their journey. As communities stand together at the side of the road to cheer on the torch, why don’t you join us as we pass the camera along! Log on, watch the videos, join the conversation and make LIFEconnect your virtual home! [tedNEWS]
