What do we mean when we talk about 'climate action and hope'?

When we decided to cover 'You're the Voice' by John Farnam it was important to us that it could be repurposed as an anthem for climate action and hope. One that we could take all the way to the upcoming climate conference in Paris, COP 21.

But what does 'climate action and hope' mean?

At this pivotal time, world leaders have the power to make decisions that will change our climate future. However, we must not forget our own power as individuals to take action on climate change. This can be as simple as starting a conversation, pledging to cut down on carbon in your every-day life, cutting down on single-use plastics, lobbying your local government, eating seasonally, cutting down on meat consumption, voting with your dollar, this list is endless.

There's never been a more important time to be hopeful. Climate change is a real issue, it's not a matter of opinion, and more & more we are seeing governments and large corporations pledge to take climate action. The U.S. and China have committed to bringing more to the table, and our own government is making positive pledges. The stage is set for serious change at COP 21.

Global leaders have learned from mistakes made at previous conferences and are now ready to implement real and meaningful treaties for climate action. The time to find a solution and stick to it is now! Worldwide we are moving from climate change being "somebody else's problem" to an issue we know we can only solve if we work together.

We believe that this anthem can harness the unique ability that music has to inspire hope, and motivate people to stand together and collectively find a solution.

1 Million Women's campaign for Paris is 'You're The Voice'

With a vibe of hope building that the nations of the world will agree on a breakthrough climate change treaty in Paris this December at the UN Climate Conference (COP21), we have an opportunity to influence world leaders in making decisions that will safeguard the world for future generations.

To do this, we've recorded a cover and music video of a much-loved Australian song, turning 'You're the Voice' into a powerful anthem from women for climate action and hope.

Using the power of music, we want to inspire every woman, man or child to ADD THEIR VOICE - #IMTHEVOICE - to our anthem and form a united call to world leaders for strong action on climate change. No matter who you are, you can add your voice!

Will you support our anthem launch? It's as easy as clicking a button.

With your help, it will capture the attention of governments and stand as a clear call for climate action and hope.
