During COP21 in Paris, Pathway to Paris organized two evenings of musical performances and talks to 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.
Letter from Pathway to Paris
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.
