Climate Live

Live music is back as the restrictions have been lifted, so Greta Thunberg was able to realize her dream of putting together a Live Aid, but for the climate. Climate Live’s aim is to engage, educate and empower, and there are similar concerts being arranged in around 20 countries. The Swedish event took place on the 16th of October in Kungsträdgården and on a live stream. The thousands of people in the live audience were clearly very happy to be out experiencing inspirational speakers and live music together. The crowd cheered for every single speaker and artist, like they had been starving for the chance to be a part of something truly special. 

In case you missed it, you can still watch it here.

Here are our pictures of some of the amazing artists and speakers that made it a night to remember.
