Contest Details

(Get READY! Opening September 10th 2017) We’re very excited to announce this contest inspired by the Blue Dot Movement 🌎 and funded by the Cooperators Investment Group’s Impact! Leadership Program.

The media has been overwhelming lately… So, we want to promote a project that reminds people of how we, like the places and cities we live in, are living things. It’s beautiful when children grow up taking care of, appreciating and respecting their environments, whether wild or urban.

What do you wish to preserve and protect?

Show us! We believe that there must be an organic, human quality to everything we interact with. The ideal city is inclusive, something that is everybody’s project with parks, walkways and bike lanes, etc. When people reclaim their space, there’s more vitality and spontaneity. Our wild environments, as well as, urban environments must provide for the emotional wellbeing of inhabitants.

Why music? Can Hope Lead to Action?

Music evokes empathy and empathy is about seeking to understand. It helps us challenge prejudice, find commonality, and expand our moral universe. Through our music, we want to see kindness create more hope in the world and convert that hope into action! We Now Need Everyone Doing Everything, Everywhere, All the Time! Emotional connection to our environment, in addition to, with ourselves and others is fundamental. All of this is essential towards creating sustainable impact!
