Welcome to Vital Signs of the Planet, a virtual concert where NASA and National Geographic join young global leaders and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for epic climate concert. This powerful concert acted as a special moment for global youth and the arts to speak for the planet and share their voices during Earth’s vital time of need in the face of the climate crisis.
Watch as the power of music, combined with new dramatic footage from NASA and National Geographic, bring the impact of climate change over the last 20 years on planet Earth to the forefront for a powerful cinematic event that took place last year at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall during COP26 and as part of our Green Room programme.
During Vital Signs of the Planet you will see Royal Conservatoire musicians, young leaders, champions of the environmental movement as well as internationally renowned artists tell their stories of climate change throughout this concert designed to inspire and motivate audiences across the world. The 100-strong symphony orchestra of young musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and its Junior Conservatoire joined together, alongside internationally recognised conductor Emil de Cou, singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield, and the Global Climate Uprising Festival to create this hour-long symphonic spectacular blending music and cinematic visuals.
The concert was presented in partnership by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Global Climate Uprising Festival and is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies.
