We’re looking for ten amazing young leaders to spend five months in Borneo to implement the DeforestACTION project in the jungle and connect with the world though the web, providing updates for millions of students across the globe who are responsible for driving, developing and owning the project.

TakingITGlobal is working together with Microsoft Partners in Learning on DeforestACTION, a global action project involving students from around the world in protecting the world’s forests. We’ve teamed up with acclaimed conservationist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach to develop a project that will save endangered rainforest and orangutans, create awareness about the destruction caused by deforestation, restore a full forest eco-system and provide a sustainable livelihood for the local community. The project will also create the world’s largest and most technology rich orangutan sanctuary on earth.

Award-winning production company Virgo Productions is developing a 3D feature documentary about the project in collaboration with National Geographic Entertainment. Shooting will take place over five months in Borneo, commencing in June 2011. Cathy Henkel, (The Burning Season, The Man who Stole my Mother’s Face) will produce and direct Project Borneo 3D: An Action Movie, to be shot by acclaimed cinematographer Don McAlpine (Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Wolverine) and Paul Nichola (Cane Toads: The Conquest 3D).
