Join Michael, Patti Smith, Dave Matthews & Others for World Environment Day Livestream

(from uDiscoverMusic): Organized by the United Nations Environment Program North America Region along with Pathway to Paris and 350.org, the World Environment Day livestream event will be held on June 4 with appearances from Patti Smith, Michael Stipe, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper and more. Featuring an array of musicians, the event hopes to bring attention to the ongoing environmental crisis the planet currently faces.

“It is critical that we consider the urgent needs of our planet as we transition back into living our lives and performing concerts again after a year of global quarantining and isolation,” said Jesse Paris Smith, who founded Pathway to Paris with Rebecca Foon. “We simply cannot go back to the way things were before.”

According to Smith & Foon, “We are so excited to announce our virtual World Environment Day Festival happening June 4th! @pathway2paris , @350org , and the United Nations Environment Program @unep North America Region are joining together in celebration of our planet. This year’s theme is the protection of our ecosystems and repairing our relationship with nature as we move forward into a new era of global recovery.”

Other performers include Jack Johnson, Rocky Dawuni, Priya Darshini, Tomas Doncker, Jordan Sanchez, Rima Fujita, Tenzin Choegyal, Patrick Watson, and Jackson Smith

The festival will stream live on Pathway to Paris’ Facebook page June 4th at 3PM EST. You can also watch on the Facebook pages of 350 and UNEP. Stay tuned for more information here.
