The event is being presented by IAAI – the International Association for the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges, a UN accredited not-for-profit civil society organization which is based in Austria in collaboration with the Ghiberti Center for Culture at Grace Cathedral and Unify.Earth.

The event aims:

  1. To showcase music (videos as well as live performances) which inspires, supports and energizes efforts for the global common good (and espcially climate action, like the California Global Climate Action Summit
  2. To give a stage and audience for stories of youth led civic engagement and action for people and planet
  3. To promote  a culture of low-carbon lifestyles 
  4. To present technological and institutional solutions for youth empowerment for climate action 

A key element of the event will be the presentation and discussion of  music as a means to inspire and mobilize society for enhanced climate action.
