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