We are delighted to inform you that we have launched “Music for SDGs” Project with the following objective: Under the slogan of “No one will be left behind!”, aiming to provide opportunities for the general public to deepen understanding of SDGs in an easier and enjoyable way through music events integrating entertainment and education.
As the first event, we successfully organized “JAZZ Concert – ANIME for SDGs” on November 1, 2018 at Crown Theater in Times Square, New York, where Japanese Anime songs were performed by jazz musicians, combined with talk shows on SDGs.
As the next event, we are planning to hold #ActionNow SDGs Celebration 2019-2020 – Music for SDGs Jazz Anime Concert on October 6, 2019 in New York, back to back to the UN Climate Action Summit and UN SDGs Summit on 23-25 September 2019.
Taking this opportunity of having Tokyo Olympic & Paralympic, Osaka Expo in Japan, we are planning to hold music events inviting various artist. We partner with GloCha, a multi-stakeholder partnership, for individuals, institutions and UN agencies to collaborate together to act on global challenges as part of #ActionNow initiative, which is supported by UNESCO and MOST.
To achieve our objective above, we have established the Secretariat, and are seeking sponsors, collaborators and advisors who support SDGs and share our objectives. Especially, we aims to find charitable and philanthropic celebrities as Ambassadors for our project.
