Live Earth 2015 announced for 18th June

Eight years after the inaugural Live Earth, co-founders Al Gore and Kevin Wall will revive their campaigning worldwide festival in 2015 in the lead-up to this year’s UN climate change conference in Paris. Wall and Gore announced the details of Live Earth 2015 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where they were joined onstage by Pharrell Williams, who will serve as Live Earth’s creative director.

Live Earth will unite voices from around the world to deliver a single message to world leaders to reach a binding agreement to tackle climate change at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris. On June 18, Live Earth concerts will take place across the world, on six continents on one day, reaching over 2 billion people across more than 190 countries with shows in Paris, New York, Brazil, South Africa, China and Australia and one act will play a seventh concert on Antarctica.
