Live Earth 2015: more than 100 artists for the global climate concert

Posted on

More than 100 artists from all seven continents will take part in the global concert Live Earth, on June 18th, 2015, to raise public awareness about climate change and bear down on governments to achieve a legally-binding agreement at the United Nations climate change conference in Paris in december.

Former United States Vice President and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 Al Gore and pop star Pharrell Williams announced plans at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The concerts will take place in all seven continents – including Antarctica – with major stops in Paris, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Sydney, and Cape Town. The global concert will go on for 24 hours with each city’s show lasting between four to six hours.
“The purpose”, Gore said, “is to have a billion voices with one message: to demand climate action now.”
