The environment matters. What we do, how we live our lives and the decisions we make will have an impact on the world around us. From recycling to renewable energy, from pollution to plastics we all have a part to play in making our world a home fit for future generations.
On Friday 14th September, during National Beach Clean Week, Portsmouth Music Hub will launch 'One World'. During a year of special events and concerts, and bringing together music, drama, art, poetry and dance, 'One World' will reach thousands of children and young people from across Portsmouth. The message is simple; that the environmental choices we make every day will change the world.
Sue Beckett, Chief Executive of Portsmouth Music Hub, said "This will be the first time that Portsmouth Music Hub has delivered a year of events that focus on a single theme, and we're very encouraged by the level of support we've already received from arts organisations, local businesses and schools. It's going to be an exciting year of live performances, music, film, social media and competitions, and 'One World' will be an opportunity to explore key environmental issues in a creative format which we know will encourage, educate and inspire young minds."
The One World Songbook will be launched at Southsea beach in September 2018. Created by the award-winning team of composers from Portsmouth Music Hub the songs will focus on local environmental issues that have a global impact. Throughout the year 'One World' will raise awareness with poetry and art competitions, social media campaigns, visits to schools from music, dance and theatre companies, culminating on World Environment Day in June 2019 with the One World Concert at Portsmouth's Guildhall.
