About the event
The International Conference on Sustainable Development presents the second annual "Music for a Sustainable Planet" concert featuring DJ Spooky and ÆON Music Ensemble, performing works in response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As world leaders gather at the United Nations General Assembly on the theme ‘SDGs: a universal push to transform our world,’ the concert offers a musical interpretation of what is at stake and what is possible. Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, will offer opening remarks that contextualize the larger issues being faced by all of us as we work for a more sustainable future.
