AFREEFEST 24-Hour Mandela Day Music Festival

Inspired by the African term “Ubuntu” meaning “humanity” and “I am because we are”, AFREEFEST is a platform that was created to share cultural experiences in art, music, and creativity. Conservation Music is proud to serve as AFREEFEST’s official Facebook streaming and donations partner this Mandela Day, July 18th 2020!

Earthsong is excited to be partnering with Art For the Journey, a visual arts charity, to produce a TV show called The Creative Corner! It features engaging educational programming on weekdays throughout the summer to help students avoid the “summer slide” and expand their understanding of the world.

Announcing Earthsong!

The team behind Conservation Music is very excited to announce Earthsong, a brand new 501c3 public charity! Earthsong is the culmination of four years of learning, experimentation, research, and experience on the part of Conservation Music’s founder, team, and the communities we serve.

Our COVID-19 Response

We are loving all of the musical responses to COVID-19 from all over the world. We also recognize that these amazing programs are primarily being done by major celebrity artists, on global or western platforms, in English. Earthsong is creating tools for musicians to spread hope, peace, and accurate COVID-19 information, especially in the developing world.

Report: CMES Youth Leadership Summit 2020

From 8-13 February 2020, Conservation Music/Earthsong Summit (CMES) held a training and collaboration summit with its chapter leaders in Fontainebleau, Johannesburg, South Africa over a period of five days. The summit was organized by the CMES global leadership in order to further educate its management staff and work together on the creation of the CMES Handbook, which will be used as the organization’s global standard as it continues to expand.

OUR MISSION

Putting music to work for the planet and its people.

OUR VISION

A world of informed and engaged individuals making sustainable choices which positively affect their own wellbeing, their communities, and the environment.

Planet Earth is home for all of us.

EDUCATE

We create and distribute educational content for use in schools and communities all over the world. We leverage the scientifically proven influence of music and visual media on the human mind to create lasting and emotionally significant learning opportunities.

ADVOCATE

We identify political gaps in sustainable development and partner with other organizations to rally the public to help enact sustainable policies. We support the UN’s 17 Global Goals. Our leadership team has attended over a dozen global conferences to advocate for music as a highly effective approach to sustainable development.

ACTIVATE

We develop capacity-building resources and trainings for artists, educators, and activists to widely scale our impact. By equipping young people with knowledge of impactful programming, content creation, nonprofit management, strategic planning, and more, we are able to localize and streamline our programs in many countries.

Our Challenge

Planetary collapse has human implications.

We cannot separate the planet from its people. We must acknowledge human needs and human nature.

Frontline communities lack information.

 Safeguarding soil and water, building healthy communities, and adapting to climate change all require knowledge.

Musical impact is isolated & sporadic.

We love mega-concerts and benefit shows, but music can do so much more. We need to bridge the gaps.

Our Solution

Enlist global artists and activate youth.

Help musicians make a difference as they build their following. Empower youth to facilitate the process.

Boots on the ground in the developing world.

Get up close and personal to listen in and focus our impact where it’s needed most. Localization is key. 

Focus on scalability and continuity.

Professional development and tools designed for artists, activists, and educators everywhere.  

Our Programs

Impact Media

Thanks to the 4-year legacy of Conservation Music, we specialize in the composition and production of targeted educational music and video content. 

Live Events and Solar Cinemas

Music is a powerful gathering tool. We leverage that to deliver crucial knowledge where it counts.

Capacity Building

Developing tools and delivering trainings for artists, educators, and activists is essential to scale  exponentially.

ESD Curriculum

We collaborate with global experts to develop highly engaging Education for Sustainable Development tools.

Educational Technology

We are building a first-of-its-kind app to deliver ESD regardless of a teacher’s knowledge or abilities with topics or youth. 

Advocacy Campaigns

Music has ended wars, enabled national sovereignty, and unified persecuted populations before. The time has come.

Supporting the SDGs

Through our education and advocacy programs, Earthsong supports and promotes 17 out of 17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Not only does our organization publicize the SDGs through impact media and programs, but within our operations as we work to empower and collaborate with capable and talented individuals, old and young, throughout the world. Our team members have been privileged to contribute to the SDG conversation by performing and speaking at conferences all over the world, including the UN General Assembly in New York and the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi.

TESTIMONIAL

I have heard many English songs on conservation and environmental awareness which did stir up emotions within me. But, listening to one in my own tongue is a totally different feeling. I felt I could resonate with the message and it really touched my heart. It was also worth noting that there were so many languages on it, about five I think; all coming from different part of Zambia. I am so excited that such a message can reach the Zambians not fortunate enough to get educated and learn a foreign language.
