Rio + 20 Global Youth Music Contest

The creative movement has begun.  You can start a Youth Music Project in your own country for the Rio + 20 Global Youth Music Contest.   Soon the Regional and National coordinators will be posted on the Glocha Website so that you can contact them, but don`t forget you can also see all the submission guidelines here: Rio+20 GYMC Guidelines for Submission and other information!   

Just have the chance to put all those creative juices into influencing the world for generations to come.    Your work will be viewed by a huge public audience online and where people will vote for you and what you have to say.  It`s all about exploring what can be different in the world, you can express your views in a lyric way, through song and verse.  You can sing or speak in a combination of English and your own language, or completely in your own language or any other language.  You can have English subtitles if you want but it is not necessary.  There just needs a short summary in English.  We strongly encourage you to take your time to learn more about sustainable development and the Rio+20 United Nations Conference for Sustainable Development before submitting your music video online. There are useful online resources that can help you-you can find these at the bottom of the submission guidelines above-The online resources could enable you to think about concrete ideas on how our world leaders can achieve a sustainable world with your youth contribution.  For some inspiration on putting your sustainable themes values into song and words, watch the videos in this post.  

As example of how you can start your own music project, we got together, myself with Ilker Çırakoğlu and Denis Maksuti in Salzburg and devised some themes that we care about and want to see solutions to or to transform.  From that we got together some beats with a DJ and put that together with some more beats and improvised with them to make up some lyrics in German and far so good!  Here is a taste of the themes that were thought up in relation to the RIO + 20 themes.  You too can make it happen!
