The 13th edition of Jaipur Literature Festival 2020 is set to take place from 23-27 January 2020 at Jaipur’s Diggi Palace Hotel. The festival, produced by Sanjay Roy, managing director, Teamwork Arts, is also on the Global Advisory of Earth Day Network.
Earth Day Network, a global environmental organization that grew out of the first Earth Day on 22 April 1970, will promote environmental messages from the stage of this festival. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Earth Day Network Ambassador and Grammy Awardee, Ricky Kej will perform live at the festival.
Every year, Jaipur Literature Festival features speakers from all around the world. This year it will also see scintillating musical performances to celebrate the literary and musical heritage of India. At this year’s festival, Earth Day Network will promote #Artists for the Earth, one of Earth Day Network’s key campaigns. The campaign aims to engage the power of art to heighten awareness and increase the relevance of the environment in everyday lives of people.
Through #Artists for the Earth campaign, Earth Day Network works with artists to convince organizers to ban single-use plastic entering their spaces and to replace the traditional presentation of flower bouquets to performers with indoor house plants that help purify the air. This has already been done at hundreds of concert spaces.
Artists have also reached out to thousands of fans with special concerts and renditions on environmental issues as well as via their very active social media sites.
Earth Day Network will continue to build on this powerful means of communications with artists at Jaipur Literature Festival this year. To know more about the global campaign, click here.
