We will produce a collection of songs, and hereby invite artists, nations, and communities from around the world to record with us at the Garibay institute in Los Angeles starting in January 2024,’ said Fernando Garibay, polymath and the Grammy Award winning super producer who has produced five number one hits.

Miroslav Polzer, President of IAAI and Strategic Director of Climate Chain Coalition (UN Observer Organization) said: ‘We are organizing a global public contest inviting artists, especially young people, to create artwork around the topic of envisioning desirable futures, as part of the UN Summit of the Future being held at the UN Headquarters in New York on September 18-19, 2024.

‘Our initiative gives creatives an avenue to present alternative visions and new ideas for the UN and for the world. We will launch an online submission platform in January 2024. Our Co-creation Festival is held on June 5 in Austria. ‘Let’s celebrate our global family and co-create our future together!’ said Polzer. He added: ‘We are here because we believe that the UN system and the whole process of the implementation of the Paris Agreement needs more energy and more hands on deck. This comes not just by talking; it comes with culture and triggering emotions and raising awareness. Hence, we believe in the transformative power of culture and music, and therefore our initiative.’
