Music has long been used to raise awareness and inspire social change, and there is a growing movement to use music to tackle the issue of climate change. Adam Met is the Executive Director of Sustainable Partners, Inc. and the founder of Planet Reimagined. He is also the bassist for the multi-platinum band AJR.
Many artists and musicians have incorporated environmental messages into their music and performances, and some have even dedicated entire concerts or tours to climate activism. There are challenges and limitations to using concerts as a form of climate activism. While they can effectively raise awareness and mobilize people, they are often one-off events that do not lead to sustained action or systemic change. Additionally, the carbon footprint of large-scale music events can be significant, undermining the message of environmental responsibility. Even so, music has tremendous potential to bring us together around the issue of climate change.
