Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and other climate-vulnerable nations, are at the forefront of the climate emergency. For many of these localities, climate change poses an existential threat to present and future generations. This conference session will focus on how music can serve to give a voice to those on the front lines of the climate emergency. The panel will also focus on practical and tangible steps that can be taken by the music industry to mitigate and help people adapt to climate change.
