Announced by climate change front-man Al Gore, music TV producer Kevin Wall and music legend Pharrell Williams, this event will revive the Live Earth template on June 18th to rally action on climate change.
From Sydney to Rio to Durban to Antarctica to New York and Beijing, Live Earth together with the United Nations will once again create a series of events over 24 hours on six continents. The hub of this global affair rightly comes from Paris at the Stade de France, the same city that will host the much anticipated United Nations conference five months later.
Ban-Ki Moon commented that “Live Earth ‘Road To Paris’ will bring us together, and amplify our voices. It will help us seize the opportunity of a low carbon future. We all have a role to play in building a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world for ourselves and for our children. I urge people everywhere to take climate action now.”
Live Earth 2015 will be broadcast across all major media platforms and its take-home message of inspiring climate action is bolstered by an online campaign to bring together a billion voices to deliver the strong message of the urgent need for action on climate change. People across the globe want climate action and when enough people demand it, leaders will take note. Live Earth 2015-Road to Paris seeks to harness and unite these voices to pressure leaders to agree bold emission targets later this year.
