In December 2015, the world’s leaders will assemble in Paris for COP21 in an effort to sign a meaningful, universal global agreement on climate change. The song’s producers hope that “Love Song to The Earth” will bring the issue to new audiences and inspire them to reach out to their leaders to demand climate action. The artists will be asking their fans to “Share the Love Song” and “Take Climate Action Now” by signing a petition that will be delivered to world’s leaders at the beginning of the climate conference.
“The UN has called for ‘all hands on deck’ to address this global challenge. The support, engagement, and passion of the creative community are key to engaging new audiences in the call for a meaningful and universal climate change agreement. When UN member states gather in Paris this December, the voices of everyone, especially the entertainment industry, will help ensure the best outcome possible for a better future for all.” said Aaron Sherinian, chief communications and marketing officer of the UN Foundation.
