Is music sustainable?

Prominent and committed artists such as Reto Bieri, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Igor Levit, and Johanna Malangré share their ideas of sustainability and a better future with us. Through short clips they will tackle the question: “Ultimately, what is sustainable when it comes to music?"

For Future Generations

Nothing seems more sustainable than music. Music makes our world a little better — with every note and melody. And the best thing of all is that music has survived every trend so far: it endures forever. We want music to survive — just like our environment, our society, our culture. For future generations.

Therefore, together with our long-standing partner Zurich Insurance, we have launched the Musicians for Future initiative. Our goal: We want to stimulate a discussion on the topic of sustainability. We want to inspire and motivate each individual to make their contribution to a better future.
