About This Video: 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. This video is a synthesis of recordings that were made in all locations. The success of ‘Sing for the Climate’ proves that a mass mobilization around climate change is still possible even after the COP15 in Copenhagen.
But Belgium is a small country and climate change is global problem, which needs to be tackled on an international level. Therefore we appeal to local groups and organizations worldwide to organize their own version of Sing for the Climate.

About This Video: Climate One speaks to climate scientists Katharine Hayhoe and Michael Mann on the different methods of communicating climate science to different types of people. “Even though there’s a one size facts fit all, there’s not a one size message fits all,” says Hayhoe. “We focus so much on climate change as an issue of science or an issue of policy or economics, you know, cost-benefit analysis, but, you know, not often enough do we frame it for the issue that it really is ultimately,” says Mann. “It’s an issue of our ethical obligation.”
