9th European Forum on Music

Climate Action: Music as a Driver for Change

/'fɔːɹəm/ "A meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged"

The European Forum on Music (EFM) will take place from Thursday, 4 June until Sunday, 7 June 2020 in Bonn/Germany. The EFM will come to Germany for the first time in 2020 in the framework of the Beethoven Anniversary.

"Climate Action: Music as a Driver for Change”, will focus on the connection between music and ecological sustainability. Representatives of European music organisations will gather to discuss with policy makers and environmental experts how music activities can contribute to the protection of our environment. Not only a more eco-friendly behaviour within the music world shall be at stake, but also how music can help raising the awareness for the need of climate action in general and how the music sector can support activists in their efforts to put the issues on the highest level of the political agendas. As part of the Pastoral Project (led by the Beethoven 2020 society) many artists will perform Beethoven’s 6th Symphony live and stand up for nature, sustainability and environmental protection. Meetings will take place in the Gustav-Stresemann-Institute in Bonn.

Join us in Bonn for making a change! Registration to open soon...
