The worlds of music, culture and art have a massive role to play in making progress on sustainable development goals. But how do young people starting out in the industry navigate a path that connects their creative talent to their social change mission?

This London Climate Action Week, the RSA are partnering with singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and UN SDG Youth Leader AY Young for a day of conversations focused on how artists can mobilise audiences and communities to champion sustainability, securing a healthier, kinder future for people, places and planet.

On the 26th June, all are welcome to RSA House for an “AMA” session with AY on sustainability and artistry in the music business. AY will talk about his career as a producer and performer supporting acts from Wyclef Jean to Wiz Khalifa, to creating the ground-breaking renewably powered Battery Tour, as well as being joined by artists and musicians who are pursuing sustainable pathways through the industry.

Speakers will include singer songwriter Alex HepburnTimo Peach, creative director and artist, Momo:zo; Margarita Samsonova, founder, Behind the Greens; Jarvis Smith, recording artist and founder, MyGreenPod; and Lisa Merrick-Lawless, co-founder, Purpose Disruptors.
