Concert for a Sustainable Planet

Adopted by all countries in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for an end to extreme poverty, ensure that children reach their full potential, support peaceful and healthy communities, and conserve nature.

Concert for a Sustainable Planet hopes to foster a dialogue and inspire concrete action. The program features classical pieces, such as Beethoven's Eroica, alongside contemporary pieces, including world premieres by composers Ronen Shapira and Merlijn Twaalfhoven. Shapira joins the ensemble, and Twaalfhoven directs the performers together with the audience in an innovative, collaborative piece.
