Ben & Jerry's proudly supports Pathways to Paris in their awesome vision to create a global moment to show just how important it is to secure a legally binding agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015.
With the help of climate enthusiasts and world-class musical talent, Pathways to Paris will be hosting an intimate event, aiming to connect the world with climate justice in a peaceful way. And, considering current world issues, event organisers have released this statement, explaining how their call for compassion now makes Pathways to Paris only more meaningful:
In the light of the recent tragedies in Paris and Beirut, we would like to continue with the Pathway to Paris concerts and bring our voices together in solidarity, offering our love and commitment to a sustainable world.
Pathway to Paris is a call for peace, compassion, respect, equality, justice, love, human rights and a fight for the survival of our planet. It is about bringing together our voices to highlight our love for this world.
We feel the urgency to come together and build a global movement for climate justice, recognising that climate change and its challenges interconnects us all.
The upcoming climate change talks offer an enormous opportunity to send a clear signal that the world is moving away from fossil fuels and towards a renewable energy future whilst listening and problem solving with voices from around the world.
Music is a universal language and climate change is a global concert.
The time is now.

Here's The Scoop
Pathway to Paris is an initiative in partnership with 350.org. It brings together musicians, artists, activists, academics, politicians and innovators to participate in a series of events and dialogues, helping to raise awareness around the urgency of climate action and the importance of establishing an ambitious global and legally binding agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015.
Co-founded by musicians Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon, Pathway to Paris kicked off with an intimate evening of music and speakers at Le Poisson Rouge, immediately following the People’s Climate March in New York City in September 2014. A series of similar events unfolded in New York and Montreal over the next year, with the final Pathway to Paris concerts taking place on December 4th and 5th 2015 in Paris… and here is the all-star line-up!
