EXPEDITION #K2K MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Our 13-month mobile studio caravan from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro…

Our Mission

Through the catalytic power of music, we confront environmental collapse and humanitarian disaster in the developing world and beyond.

Our Vision

A global community that stewards the Earth, in which the memorable, emotional, and unifying power of music contributes to the balance between humankind, nature, and society.

Planet Earth is home for all of us.

What We Do

Media Production

We collaborate with local musicians in local styles and languages to produce eco-minded songs and music videos for distribution through radio and TV, online, and throughout a network of dozens of local chapters, implementing partners, schools and extracurricular programs, and more!

CLASSROOM RESOURCES

We develop classroom materials to encourage fun, engaging and versatile eco-education for teachers in our program countries and around the world! 

LIVE EVENTS & WORKSHOPS

We lead all sorts of live workshops, concerts and other events to benefit musicians, communities, schools and all people interested in the union of music with the environment. Some of our most successful events include songwriting workshops, eco-concerts and musical activations.

YOUTH MOBILIZATION

We identify talented youth leaders, help them build their teams, and empower them with structures, resources, and strategies to lead their own eco-musical revolutions at the national level! This includes promoting CM content, maintaining artist relationships, and more

WHAT IT DOES

RALLY PUBLIC & POLITICAL WILL

Humanity has seen the role music played in taking on the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and more. History has been, and will continue to be shaped by its musicians. The Earth cannot speak for itself save for deadly disasters. It’s time to speak up for it, before it’s too late! The public and those in positions of power must be on the same page, we all have roles to play in protecting the Earth and each other.

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

Going further than raising awareness, we create opportunities for real education to take place to enable action for the planet and its people! Through musical storytelling, we are opening people’s minds to new facts and ideas, reinforcing prior learning, and creating conviction through music’s incomparable ability to tap into human emotion.

MOBILIZE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

The music industry has vast influence and resources that can be put to work for the planet. We intend to facilitate that realization worldwide. It’s time to make this responsibility known by the industry itself, and to make it easy for the music scene to take part in saving our planet and protecting its people!

How We Do It

COMPOSITION

Our skilled team of facilitators collaborates with artists all over the world to create something unique with a powerful message. We are also available for song commissions.

RECORDING

VIDEO

We specialize in music videos, interviews, web series, and documentary films!

Live EVENTS

Collaborations with festivals like Bushfire and Rocking the Daisies have us excited to bring our inspired friends around the world! We’ve also thrown plenty of benefit concerts, and our founder Alex is available for public speaking,

TESTIMONIAL

I have heard many English songs on conservation and environmental awareness which did stir up emotions within me. But, listening to one in my own tongue is a totally different feeling. I felt I could resonate with the message and it really touched my heart. It was also worth noting that there were so many languages on it, about five I think; all coming from different part of Zambia. I am so excited that such a message can reach the Zambians not fortunate enough to get educated and learn a foreign language.
