A couple of days ago TckTckTck launched their global campaign song, a re-mix of the mega-hit “Beds are Burning”, recorded by over 60 artists and celebrities, and re-written by Midnight Oil themselves to reflect the greatest humanitarian crisis – climate change.
The song was driven by one of the co-founders of the TckTckTck campaign, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s new organization, the Global Humanitarian Forum, and their partners global advertising giant Havas Worldwide and their film production arm, The:Hours.
The song has been supported by over 60 international music stars and celebrities including Duran Duran, Mark Ronson, Jamie Cullum, Melanie Laurent, Marion Cotillard, Milla Jovovich, Fergie, Lily Allen, Manu Katche, Bob Geldof, Youssou N’Dour, Yannick Noah and many more.
TckTckTck is a global alliance of non-government organizations, trade unions and faith groups that was formed in April, 2009 to influence the international climate change treaty at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change world summit to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark in December, 2009. The TckTckTck campaign is led by the Global Campaign for Climate Action, and aims to advocate for both the humanitarian and environmental impacts of climate change.
