Video: Concert for a New Earth

I wish you could have been there with us to bathe in the excitement in Brazil last June. During the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, a group of us produced an amazing event, Concert for a New Earth.

Artists, natives, elders, and children from all over the world gathered together to honor our Mother Earth and mobilize a movement to transform humanity's relationship to our planet; a movement that includes all of us.

The artists included YouTube sensation Playing for Change, Legendary Brazilian singer/songwriter Milton Nascimento, the adorable Oeiras Santo Amaro Children’s Choir (winner of the Rio+20 Global Youth Music Contest), and many others.

The atmosphere was euphoric in Rio. While government officials were laboring at an agreement to usher in a new era of sustainability, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets, literally holding our planet up in their hands (watch for that at the end of the video).

I am so humbled and grateful that I got to co-produce and direct Concert for a New Earth. Please watch our video and share it. My deepest hope is that it inspires you and brings you into the fold of the amazing movement that swept Rio last June.

With love,
