Discussed concerns and fears about the future translated into a film clip

The truth and in the case of climate change, the science, is too easily lost in the vortex of the 24 hours news cycle, where controversy is far more important than truth. There are hundreds of solutions, cheapest and fastest, to reverse climate change. Some ways are direct to action, like planting millions of trees is fastest and cheapest as well. And some do possess creative activities to get the attention of the powerful leaders, asking for change. Singing a song for climate change is one of them. The UN Climate Change Conference is going to witness raised voices in rhythm as a climate change message.

Schoolgirls are sending a special message of hope to next week’s UN Climate Change Conference in Spain, organized by The Film Company.

A new music clip is circulating on the internet surface where some schoolgirls of Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School, Australia, who joined forces with the Producer of RIDE LIKE A GIRL will send the singing message. The clip will be played at the UN Climate Change Conference. Richard Keddie from The Film Company (Ride Like A Girl; Oddball, Hawke, Little Fish) and Lowther’s students have acquired the rights to the famous Burt Bacharach song – “What the world needs now is Love.” Richard directed the video.

It is our hope that the delegates will come together to address the global climate issues in a compassionate and caring way and this song is our plea for constructive and co-operative leadership to guide us through these complex issues,” said one of the singers Mia in Year 11, Chair of the school’s Social Justice Committee. She also hopes that as children of today and adults of the future their voices need to be heard and their concerns listened to.

Bishop Philip Higgins will play the loud and clearly Film Clip/song as an Official Delegate on behalf of the World Council of Churches at the Conference. Richard and Philip collaborated with students at Lowther Hall to discuss their concerns and fears about the future, and Richard translated their ideas into the film clip.,

Richard Keddie was overwhelmed by the talent and wisdom of the girls he collaborated with and hopes that the girls’ message resonates loudly around the world. He said that it is unbelievable to think that we are knowingly burning our world, our home from out beneath us. Sadly, there is a pervading sense of meanness in the world that is invading our lives and disrupting our relationships. What we read and see is not truly reflective of how wonderful the human race is and can be. It is leading our children into a future no-one wishes for. It has to change. We have to change. Through this song, I hope we can recognize how dangerous a game we are playing at, and how important it is that love and understanding underline our approach to the major issues ahead.

Bishop Huggins said he is taking this message of love and peace into the conference. “To give our young people a better future this Conference must succeed. We, the human family need to become a more benign, a more loving presence on the planet.”
