An evening of musical performances and talks to unite around our climate and a sustainable future for our planet. Pathway to Paris is an initiative founded by musicians/activists Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon in partnership with 350.org that brings together musicians, artists, activists, academics, politicians and innovators to participate in a series of concert events to help raise consciousness around the urgency of climate action and the importance of establishing an ambitious, global, legally binding agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015. Pathway to Paris kicked off with an intimate evening of music and speakers at Le Poisson Rouge immediately following the People’s Climate March in New York City in September 2014. An intimate series of similar events have been unfolding in New York and Montreal since then. The Pathway to Paris concert series will culminate in Paris during the UN Climate Change Conference.

In light of the recent tragedies in Paris and Beirut, we would like to continue with the Pathway to Paris concerts and bring our voices together in solidarity, offering our love and commitment to a sustainable world.

Pathway to Paris is a call for peace, compassion, respect, equality, justice, democracy, love, human rights and a fight for the survival of our planet. It is about bringing together our voices to highlight our love for this world.

We feel the urgency to come together and build a global movement for climate justice, recognizing that climate change and its challenges interconnects us all.

The upcoming climate change talks offer an enormous opportunity to send a clear signal that the world is moving away from fossil fuels and towards a renewable energy future, while listening and problem solving with voices from around the world.

Music is a universal language and climate change is a global concern.

The time is now.

With love,
Jesse Paris Smith & Rebecca Foon (Co-Founders of Pathway to Paris),
Patti Smith, Thom Yorke, Flea, Fally Ipupa, Tenzin Choegyal
