Sing for the Climate 3 Favorite 

Sing for the Climate is a big singing manifestation that first took place on September 22 and 23 2012 in Belgium. More than 80.000 people in more than 180 Belgian cities and communities sang the song "Do it Now", urging politicians to take more ambitious climate measures both on local, national and international level.

A month later 725 schools organized a Sing@school. 300.000 kids sang “Do it Now” at their playground. This is how 380.000 Belgians voiced their support for the climate.

All these manifestations were captured on film and combined into one videoclip. This final clip was used to ask politicians to take measures to stop the global warming.
On the 29th of November 2012 we showed the premiere of the clip in the Belgian parliament to the Belgian Prime Minister; Elio Di Ruppo, the State Secretary of Environment; Melchior Wathelet, the Flemish Minister of Environment; Joke Schauvlieghe and the Minister of Environment in the European Federal Parlement; Evelyne Huytebroeck. All the above signed the demands of the Campaign for the Climate and therefore committed themselves to take necessary measures.

After that we took the clip with us to the Climate Top at Doha in December 2012. We were even able to show the clip at the beginning of the last Plenary Meeting. Now it's clear to the world that the population of a small country can have a huge say about justice for the climate.

The success of 'Sing for the Climate' proves that a mass mobilization around climate change is still possible even after the COP15 in Copenhagen.

Because we really need to make this an international campaign. Now is time to give the same signal on an international level. Therefore we appeal to local groups and organizations worldwide to organize their own version of Sing for the Climate and register it on the website
