Around the world in 24 hours and 24 campfires

What is it?

Very simple. For 24 hours we will be streaming a live event; visiting a different campfire in a different country every hour. We will be following one full rotation of the globe and visiting countries at sunset. At each campfire we will:

  • See a campfire (in any guise, big, small, outside, inside, candle etc – as long as we can see a light)
  • Hear a local/native campfire song
  • Hear the #24HourCampfire Theme song
  • Toast marshmallows (or another local tradition)
  • Send the #BeKind message to the next country/campfire

Why?

During this strange time a lot of people haven’t been able to see and interact with friends from all around the world. We haven’t been able to travel, go to summer camps and experience other cultures.

We felt that the Campfire symbolises so many important things and to be able to share this special event with people around the world felt very appropriate.

campfire is a fire at a campsite that provides light and warmth…

It can also serve as a beacon…

At summer camps, the word campfire often refers to an event (ceremony, get together, etc.)…

It has even more significance the fact the 24th July would have been the Opening Ceremony for Tokyo Olympics, 2020. The Olympic message is:

Together we can change the world
