The LiveHOPE Festival is the LiveAID of the 21st Century!
Reimagine Everything with the People’s Global Reset
The LiveHOPE Festival celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Live AID by gathering the greatest minds, the biggest hearts, and the most compassionate souls to “Re imagine Everything”. People are invited to co-create the “People’s Global Reset” to reset all our economic, social, ecological, and climate systems.
We want to create a fairer and just world, to restore the climate and our environment, while simultaneously ending global poverty in our lifetime.
As the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic “Stopped” modern civilization in its tracks, it gives us time to “Pause”, to think and to reflect on our crumbling old man-made system that never worked for 99% of us anyways. Now it is time to “Reset” everything to create a better world as we reopen and restart civilization. Let us co-create and implement new systems that will allow all beings to thrive on this great planet.
We will host a “Mini Live Aid Virtual Celebration” of the 35th Anniversary of Live Aid on Saturday, July 11, 2020 (7-11), an “Conference of the Movements 26 Virtual” on Nov. 9-20, 2020, and a “Full Live Aid Celebration” on September 17-23, 2021. Music is used as a catalyst to hold conferences, discussions, workshops, and actions to ” Reimagine and to Reset everything”.
Live AID on July 13, 1985, was “The Day the Music Changed the World”. We can change the world again. We cannot hope for our political leaders to take action on these emergencies; we have to do it ourselves.
The event is being organized by Indigenous peoples who protect 80% of the planet’s biodiversity and are the key to restoring the climate and the environment. The event is also being supported by grassroots organizations, environmentalists, Indigenous peoples, social activists #BlackLivesMatter activists, and the Standing Rock #NODAPL movement.
1,000 Indigenous Nations are expected to gather virtually and live at Standing Rock to create their own Indigenous United Nations with an assembly building resembling the U.N. near NYC. Once fully formed, the Indigenous United Nations will represent 370 million Indigenous Peoples worldwide, As an economic and political block, it will have a similar population as the Europen Union and the USA, but will be protecting 80% of the world’s biodiversity and forests. Indigenous people’s rights are the key to a livable planet.
Harrison Ford, the famous actor, and a Conservation International Board Member said at the 2019 UN Global Climate Action Summit, “Because the destruction of nature accounts for more global emissions than all the cars and trucks in the world. As long as the land of tribal people / indigenous peoples is allowed to be encroached upon… our climate goals will remain out of reach.”
Xiuhtezcatl Martinez from the Earth Guardians and the Children’s Trust says, “Climate change is the defining issue of our time. The actions those in power take and decisions they make today, will determine the kind of world future generations inherit.”
Greta Thunberg, a 15-year-old student from Sweden, captured the attention of the world recently when she shamed climate change negotiators at a United Nations climate summit in Poland. “You are not mature enough to tell it like is,” she said at the COP24 summit.
