Live Earth founder Kevin Wall and Nobel Peace Prize winner and environmentalist Al Gore are at it again, collaborating on a project to raise awareness about the climate crisis in time for this year’s Presidential Elections, trading the worldwide stadiums for college campuses across the U.S.
On Sunday, October 5th, Live Earth will produce four major events, with A-list celebrities and high-ranking political officials, at yet to be announced campuses in the northern, southern, eastern and western United States, which will be broadcast across television, broadband, and wireless networks nationwide.
These events will blend music and education in a compelling way that’s aimed to speak directly to young people, encouraging them to make the environment a key voting issue for this election season.
Last summer’s 7.7.07 Live Earth concerts were hugely successful. But because schools were not in session in July, the organization was not able to incorporate the participation of college students–a critical group that has long been at the forefront of social change.
This fall, Live Earth Campus will be an opportunity for students to stand up and have their voices heard. Just one month before the presidential elections, and days before voter registration closes, Live Earth Campus will ensure that the environment is a driving concern, as young people enter the voting booth in November.
