This event is part of ClimateKeys, a new, glocal initiative launching with over thirty concerts in nine countries during October & November to raise public engagement with CoP23. Musicians and expert speakers are collaborating in concerts that include conversations with the audience about positive response to climate change. To date, over a hundred concert musicians and expert speakers in twenty countries have joined ClimateKeys. More concerts are being planned through 2018.

As COP23 approaches an end in Bonn, Syracuse London will be pushing the global discussion on ClimateKeys​ through an interactive night of musical conversation. ClimateKeys founder Lola Perrin will be joined by classical guitarist Michael Poll to introduce the evening with professional musical contemplations of nature and climate change. Guest expert Rebecca L. Farnum will respond with a reflection on environmental justice and the current state of our planet's 'climate song'. Syracuse's community engagement manager, Olivia Compton, will then launch a participatory open mic inviting students to share their perspectives via spoken word, prepared instrumental piece, and spontaneous thought. At the end of the day, the piano will have the last word, calling us to environmental action, as Lola shares a concluding melody.
