Opera for Peace Announces New Initiative with the OCCE

28th January 2021

 

Opera for Peace & OCCE commit to protecting the environment through music: the fight against climate change through the performing arts

 

Performing arts and circular economy together for the first time in the fight against climate change and global warming.

 

Thanks to an important agreement signed between Opera for Peace, the largest world network for young opera professionals, and the OCCE, the European Organization for the Climate and Circular Economy, the fight for the protection of our planet becomes even more incisive. Counting on the evocative power of music and opera, undoubtedly the most powerful expression of life and the human condition.

 

The collaboration will focus on five key points: a calendar of events made up of concerts and recitals focusing on the circular economy and respect for the environment; a development of our Global Connections Program to activate creative collaborations that encourage young people from all over the world to become participants and promoters of environmental initiatives; the creation of a Think tank for the drafting of an Environmental Charter: promotion of Educational initiatives to explain the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint; the organization of a series of conferences for established artists and emerging talents, addressing the important social issues that our world faces today from a new perspective.

 

The first events in the next months will take place in Beirut, Lebanon and Lerici, Italy.
