Campaign — Anthem for the Amazon
The Amazon is one of the most important ecosystem for mitigating climate change. It moderates weather patterns locally and globally, carries 20% of the planets fresh water to the ocean, holds more that 30% of all species in the world, and is the home to thousands of indigenous tribes.
Experts say that at the current rate of destruction the Amazon will be gone in 40 years.
The window of opportunity to preserve the lungs of the planet is closing with each passing day.
A music video project that will educate a worldwide audience about the importance of the Amazon rainforest strives to be a global voice to ask, if you could save the world’s greatest forest, would you?
The Amazon Aid Foundation and Rhythm of the Universe are teaming up to produce the Anthem for the Amazon, a music video project to educate a global audience about the importance of the Amazon rainforest.
Students, artists and scientists from over 100 countries will unite to create a compelling call to action to save the world’s greatest forest.
The goal is to unveil the Anthem to the global leaders at COP 20, the 2014 United Nations Climate Change Conference, taking place not far from the heart of the Amazon in Lima, Peru in December.
The campaign’s goal is to bring awareness of the Amazon to the world through music. The aim is to raise $50,000 to produce the Anthem for the Amazon music video.
The campaign ends August 23.
