This November 5th, 2017, in the lead up to COP 23 taking place in Bonn, Germany, Pathway to Paris in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme will host a concert event at Carnegie Hall with incredible musicians and leading thinkers to highlight the importance of making Paris real. Pathway to Paris will be announcing a new initiative at the event called 1000 cities, inviting all cities of the world to transition to 100% renewables by 2040. All proceeds from the event will be donated to 350.org, Pathway to Paris, and the UNDP. Michael, who will perform at the event, said he looks forward to the opportunity to sing and watch the other performers:
“I’m most excited to watch the other performers, and I know there are some surprises. It will feel great to sing again.”
Michael made this announcement on his Instagram page on Oct. 27
In addition to Michael, the night will feature performances and talks from Patti Smith, Bill McKibben, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Flea, Talib Kweli, Cat Power, Tanya Tagaq, Tenzin Choegyal, Rebecca Foon and Jesse Paris Smith. The collective effort will call on world leaders to quickly turn climate commitments into action.
