CYCDI and UNIC partner American singer and songwriter, Kēvens to campaign against Climate Crisis with his newly released song “World Is Burning” to commemorate UN75

The Creative Youth Community Development Initiative (CYCDI) with the support of United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Lagos, Nigeria partner Kēvens to campaign against Climate Crisis with his newly released song “World Is Burning” to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of United Nations.

The limited permission to use the song ‘World Is Burning’ was granted to CYCDI by Kēvens to commemorate UN at 75 whilst generating awareness for climate emergency through Solution17 for Climate Action.

The song “World Is Burning” was inspired by passion for mother earth and, in particular, Kēvens’ experience while on a trip to Hawaii. Shortly before landing, there was an announcement of possible volcanic eruptions on the Islands.

On arrival, Kēvens witnessed the occurrence of the volcanic eruptions and actually saw the formation of crater caused by the volcanic eruption. In that moment, he received an inspiration to complete the song ‘World Is Burning’, within a few days

The song is a Drum and Bass masterpiece, with Kēvens’ vocals plaintive but passionate; sung and spoken – a party jam which nevertheless spreads an incredible message.

On February 7, 2020, CYCDI in partnership with Covenant University, launched Solution17 for Climate Action to create solutions to climate crisis whilst joining the global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future we want.

The project will explore creative and innovative capacities of students through proper understanding of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), their immediate environment, the extreme climate change threat and the sustainable future; to present ideas and solutions towards shaping the future we want through the application of the 17 SDGs.

At Covenant University, 17 finalists will be selected to unravel the causes, the effects and solutions to Climate Change through the prism of SDGs. The 17 champions will be empowered to lead change movement within and outside the university community. The ideas and solutions will be presented to the world leaders by September 2020 during United Nations General Assembly.

‘World Is Burning’ is expected to inspire Covenant University’s students and everyone around the world to protect the planet.
