With music against nuclear war
WHAT WE DO
The climate crisis and the risk of nuclear war will become increasingly threatening to humanity as a whole in the coming years and decades, and there are correlations between these risks that reinforce them. Since 1947, scientists have set a “nuclear war clock” or “doomsday clock” once a year in January to draw attention to the risk of nuclear war. Since 2007, climate change has also been taken into account. Since 2020, the level has been higher than ever before. Scientists and Nobel laureates estimate the risk of a global catastrophe due to nuclear war and/or climate change to be higher than ever before. On the link between nuclear war risk and climate change, see, for example, www.nuklearer-klimawandel.de.
The fight against climate change shows that large protest actions by the population can achieve certain effects, even if these are not sufficient at present. Many experts also warn of an impending nuclear war (see, for example, https://atomkrieg-aus-versehen.de/hinweise/ ). However, the population lacks the necessary awareness of this danger. The aim of these pages is to improve this awareness.
Musicians have an enormous charisma and their music has a great effect, also regarding an international understanding. Musicians can reach many people with peace messages and support them in many ways, e.g. by providing relevant information on their website, by giving hints during a live concert or by singing special peace songs. These pages are aimed at very well known musicians as well as locally known musicians of all musical genres.
