People’s Climate Music: Frontline Communities – The Untold Stories of the Climate Movement

 Tishman Auditorium, University Center, 63 5th Ave

Sunday, September 24, 2017

There is no doubt that as 2017’s historic disasters continue to devastate communities across the world, the need to solve climate change is plain to see and more urgent than ever. 

Our communities on the frontlines of climate change are not waiting to act. The only way we can win is if we create an unstoppable movement that represents and empowers everyone. 

At this official Climate Week NYC 2017 event we are using the power of stories and culture to connect the dots to grow the climate movement to be even more powerful and big enough to win. 

Live performances from world class artists and compelling conversations with community and cultural leaders will reveal what it's like to fight for survival on the frontlines, what climate solutions we have now, and how you can use your power to make positive change.
