When it comes to the state of our planet, global headlines are increasingly dire. For those working to make a difference, the magnitude of the issues and lack of collaboration can be overwhelming. A new foundation, Earth’s Call, wants to bridge those gaps through the unifying power of music. The official launch takes place May 17–19 in Aspen, and we are all invited to partake of two days of exceptional music and inspired discussions. Oh, and even better—a block of free tickets has been reserved for locals.
Co-founded by renowned cellist and composer Michael Fitzpatrick and real estate and asset management executive Spike Buckley, Earth’s Call aims to “fund innovative solutions to fight the climate crisis.” Using education, science, social influence, partnerships, and music, the group hopes to inspire audiences to take positive environmental steps, build a grassroots movement, and encourage and support already-aware younger generations. “We want people to be entertained, to be informed, and for attendees to become first responders to earth’s call and take action in their own communities,” says Lance Gould, editorial director for Earth’s Call, about the Aspen event.
