Portsmouth Music Hub released Pollution Revolution on 16 January as part of the organisation’s One World environmental campaign.
According to the hub, the film, which can be found on the hub’s YouTube channel, has been created with children in mind, and it encourages the viewer to take positive steps to improve the local environment and to safeguard our planets limited resources.
The film is set to music, and Pollution Revolution is one of 17 songs that have been created by the music hub’s team of composers. With subjects ranging from air pollution, blue whales and chlorofluorocarbons, the One World songbook tackles challenging environmental issues in a positive, exciting and engaging way. The songs have been made available, free to download, for everyone, and educational providers in the UK, France and Canada are already using the hub’s songs as resources.
Social media plays an important part of the One World environmental campaign, and the hub has deliberately embraced a variety of social media platforms to communicate easily and effectively with young minds.
Sue Beckett, CEO of Portsmouth Music Hub, said:
‘We’ve composed an exciting range of environmental songs that are having an incredible impact with children in Portsmouth and around the country, so the next step had to be to create a series of films that brings the songs to life. Throughout the One World campaign we’ve sought to deliver key environmental messages in a way that children will understand and enjoy, which is why our films are colourful, exciting and dynamic. The music, lyrics and films really do bring our One World campaign to life.’
Pollution Revolution is the sixth song which the hub has published on YouTube, with more to come in 2019.
