Climate change awareness – Music at the arctic

Eminent Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi recently performed a unique concert floating on the Arctic Ocean.  Teaming up with Greenpeace, Einaudi travelled to the North Pole and performed his “Elegy for Arctic”, a piece composed by Greenpeace to raise awareness about the effect on Arctic region due to global climate change. The piece was performed for the first time, on a grand piano while floating on an artificial iceberg made of wood.

The musician known for his composition for the film, Black Swan and television show, Doctor Zhivago played the piece around the magnificent glaciers of the Arctic just before the beginning of the OSPAR convention, a convention for the protection of the marine environment of the North-East Atlantic, in Tenerife, Spain, that could help to protect the Arctic Ocean.

Grim situation at the Arctic

The Arctic region, an area equivalent to the size of United Kingdom is losing its glaciers as a result of global warming. It is the least protected ocean in the world. Melting of the glaciers will not only threaten the coastal regions of the world but also many of the small island nations that could face an existential threat in the near future.  The project initiated by Greenpeace has already drawn the support of over 75 lakh people across the world.
