The city of Enugu came alive, last weekend, as the Climate Change Music Concert, otherwise known as Climate Live, in precursor to the 26th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change taking place in Glasgow, Scotland.
 
The concert was Nigeria’s bit in the series of international concerts in over 40 countries in a concert series developed by ‘Fridays for Future organizers’ for a push and more sensitization on the climate change campaign.  

Country Representative of Climate Live and National Coordinator of Fridays for Future in Nigeria who organised the Enugu Concert, Mr. Kingsley Odogwu said the idea of the music concert was to gather people together, especially young people, to engage them in the peaceful and global campaign for climate justice.
 
The simultaneous global concerts that started on Saturday, October 16, is intended to let the world leaders know that more must be done to protect the planet and those who are experiencing the devastating effects of the crisis daily.   

 
Odogwu said the aim of Climate Live was to enlarge the global movement by engaging with a new audience through music, raise awareness of the challenges faced today by people on the front line of ecological breakdown, and the predictions by scientists for the future, as well as to pressure world leaders (political, economic and cultural) to take action to combat the climate crisis.
 
Artistes that performed at the Enugu Toscanna Villa concert included Kaseklozo, Trap Mike and Shaggyblaq from the University of Nigeria Nsukka.
