World Team Now Announces Heart & Soul “The Call” for Our Earth
and a World Team Event at Rio+20
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RIO DE JANIERO, RIO+20- June 21, 2012; The event will be for all people to hear through song, and personal stories how they were “called” to use their life force, for the earth. We will learn from the inner personal journey since the 1992 Earth Summit (and prior) where it all started, and what is the burning dream for the future. Where does this live in regards to individual actions, international policy, and how can we approach the manifestation of global transformation. We will hear from many icons that have walked the path of the hero for our earth. This is the inspiration needed for the next 20 years and beyond of the environmental movement so humanity could live in better balance with our resources.
Music and storytelling allow the environmental journey to be centered on what universally touches all people’s hearts and souls. We will explore how to move our future generation from the heart and soul of our humanity with the courage to act for our world.
The event will be a continuation of World Team Now’s panel side-event Humanity & Environment = Our World’s Resources – approached through not just the mind, and thought but what touches the heart and soul.
The performers for the event are:
The winners of the Rio+20 Global Youth Music Contest. The overall winner, the Choir Santo Amaro de Oeiras from Portugal who won also in the children category, and Milena Paraschiv and Radu Popescu from Romania will be performing. Through their singing they are have sending message for a better world. The music contest was organized by the International Association for the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges (IAAI) which aims at mobilizing youth from all over the world and letting them use the power of music; because music is a powerful tool to mobilize people from all age and all countries on the fight for a better world. 313 entries from 40 participating countries have been received, with over 250.000 online votes were received as well, while a group of 100+ Regional and National Coordinators have been supporting the contest globally and impacted around 5000 global youth!
