In an effort to further increase awareness about environmental issues and give a helping hand to our environmental frontliner communities in need through music, the online fundraising concert series of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines is returning this September, in partnership with Originals Only and Open Door.
Kicking off #Conservatunes for this month are rock band Caren Tevanny and indie musician Jorik Catalbas, followed by Canadian-born Filipina singer Annie Lux, with soul and gospel duo allen&elle. Sabu and Miss Ramonne will also perform for this initiative, and the month’s series run will be capped off by performances from singer and DJ Aloura and former child star turned Youtuber Nikki Bagaporo.
Launched last May 2020, the first wave of #Conservatunes brought together local musicians to raise funds and provide food assistance, as well as sustainable water and energy sources, for WWF-PH’s partner communities and environmental frontliners in the Bicol region.
For this leg, the organization is teaming up with entertainment production companies Originals Only and Open Door to fundraise for the provision of environmental education modules for 100 Filipino students. With the planet’s health and its connection to the health of human society becoming relevant now more than ever, it is important for us to ensure that we are equipping the next generation of planet protectors with the right knowledge, skills, and consciousness in order for them to be inspired to act for the environment.
WWF-Philippines is set to hold more online fundraising concerts in the months to come. For the complete lineup and schedule, and to learn how we can help #ChangeTheEnding for the environment, stay tuned and follow WWF-Philippines’ official social media pages.
