Peter Jöback joins a star-studded concert for the climate

By on June 20, 2017

Helen Sjöholm, Malena Ernman, Babben Larsson, Anders Lundin and Solala are ready since a long time. Now Peter Jöback also joins the concert Trees and Love, where the entire excess goes to Vi forest’s climate work for children. The concert will also be broadcast live at Folkets Hus and Parkers cinemas around the country.

– The children are not guilty of global warming, but they get the consequences of heavy skies, droughts and hunger. Planting trees is a way to treat threats with hope, says Helen Sjöholm about why she participates for the third consecutive year.

The concert will be performed at Göta Lejon in Stockholm and broadcast live in cinemas around the country, through Folkets Hus and Parker and the #livepåbio concept.

Ticket revenue from the concert goes to Vi-forest’s work to support children in Eastern Africa to adapt to the warmer climate. The goal is to train at least 50,000 schoolchildren so that they can address the fight against climate change. Both Babben Larsson and Anders Lundin, who are conferences for the evening, have been involved in the Vi forest for a long time:

– I hope that my own enthusiasm for the Vi forest will infect the concert visitors. I have planted many trees in the Vi forest over the years, and when I traveled to Tanzania a few years ago I asked to visit the projects in reality. After that, I became even more convinced of how good the Vi forest’s work is, says Babben Larsson.

– I have my own children that I want to grow up in a good world as possible and want to be able to say I’ve done what I’ve could to stop climate change, adds Anders Lundin.

The concert will be held on Tuesday 12 September at 19:00 at Göta Lejon and will be broadcast live at Folkets Hus and Parker cinemas around the country. Director is Anders Butta Börjesson and chapel master is Peter Ljung.

Tickets for “Trees and Love” at Göta Lejon are sold via Ticketmaster and cost 320 kronor.
