As our Twitter friend @dubtje just said about this clip: “You can be cynical or you get it warm inside. I take the last option.”
I agree. This clip Sing for the Climate isn’t the usual approach in Climate Change campaigning but it makes you feel good.

Sing for the Climate is a big singing manifestation that first took place on September 22 and 23 2012 in Belgium.
