At the World Economic Forum in Davos in January, 2015, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, Williams and producer Kevin Wall said they are putting together a music event, dubbed Live Earth — Road to Paris, to build support for protecting the climate. The Live Earth locations include China, Sydney, Cape Town, Rio de Janeiro, New York and Paris.
On June 18, 2015, together with the United Nations, Live Earth will once again create a global series of events over 24 hours, on seven continents (including Antarctica), anchored from Paris and New York. Live Earth Road to Paris will be broadcast across all major media platforms and supported by a yearlong campaign in partnership with the world’s leading brands, NGOs and non-profits.
“Together we will bring together a billion voices to shine a global spotlight on the nations convening in Paris this year and deliver a single message to all leaders – Take Climate Action Now,” says Gore.
During the announcement in Davos, Switzerland, January 21, 2015, Pharrell said the idea is to have “humanity harmonize all at once.”
