We Are What We Do is a global movement that believes it's not just politicians, institutions and big businesses that can change the world - ordinary people can do it too.
There are loads of small things we can all do everyday. We call them Actions. Little things like turning off the tap when you're brushing your teeth, taking your own bag to the supermarket or teaching your granny to text. They might seem small and insignificant on their own, but their effect can be massive. If we all do them regularly, we can have a huge impact on many of the environmental and social problems we are facing.
Campaign or initiative
Historypin is a website that allows people to view and share their personal history in a totally new way. Using Google Maps and Street View, Historypin allows millions of people from all over the world to share old images and the stories behind them. As they are dated, mapped and layered onto modern Street View scenes, these images will create a digital time machine that enables users to drop into communities anywhere all over world, at any point over the last 150 years.
