Climate change: Act with the sense of Urgency

We are facing a climate emergency. Yet, the world is not reacting to climate change with the same urgency as it has to the coronavirus crisis, despite the warning that global warming poses a greater threat than COVID-19. Weather and climate-related disasters have killed more than 410,000 people over the past decade and affected a staggering 1.7 billion people, most of them in poorer countries, with heat waves and storms proving the most deadly.

Among younger generations, civil disobedience has been seen as the only way to achieve actual change, seeing that governments have failed to act. From school strikes to the harder edge of the Extinction Rebellion, young climate activists are making their voices heard, and they're increasingly politically engaged. Reminding the world that the vote is not the only step to democracy and that civil disobedience can be an important political action towards change.

The Music industry is not alien to this. From Billie Eilish taking a stand against climate change and partnering up with the non profit organization Reverb to go green on her world tour, to Lil Dicky “Earth”. Artists and concert organizers are engaging and bringing visibility to this matter and contributing to change.
