Featured Event Idea
Screen the new video from the ClimateMusic Project
"What do we want the future to sound like" and host a discussion afterward
Celebrate Solar Education Week with a video of an original musical performance that communicates the urgency of action on climate change. The composition combines climate science with the emotional power of music to inspire meaningful action.
The video includes advanced data animations to provide context for the music and show how our climate has changed since 1800 and will evolve through 2150 (including temperature, CO2, and earth-energy balance).
ClimateMusic audiences want to discuss the emotional impact of the video, as well as what can be done in response. Therefore, we will provide a “Discussion Guide” to be used by event facilitators.
If you are interested, please contact The ClimateMusic Project directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the video and Discussion Guide.
Solar Education Week is a partnership effort by leading clean energy organizations to engage individuals across the country to organize and participate in Solar Education events!
