Brooklyn, NY, October 17, 2022 –(PR.com)– The New York-based 501(c)(3) So You Want To Change The World and its 2030 or Bust initiative dedicated to empowering people to impact the global climate crisis, announced plans to stage the first “Concert for Power” – an entertainment festival created to call attention to the enormity of the crisis while providing ordinary people the tools to take the actions needed to bridge the gap between where we are and where we need to be to end the crisis and have a sustainable future.
“When it comes to genuine change, the physical climate crisis is only one element of the challenge,” said Laughlin Artz, Founder and Executive Director of 2030 or Bust who has spent the last seven years on the frontline of this issue. “What really shocked me is humanity’s response to that physical crisis. Most people aren’t aware of their power to end this.”
Final negotiations are underway with major entertainers and Mr. Artz plans to announce the 2023 concert date, as well as headliners, venue, and streaming information, before the end of 2022.
“Laughlin is speaking a simple truth free from politics, economics, or anything else that often complicates this issue,” according to eleven-year NFL veteran Ben Garland, a partner in Wingman 63 and part of the concert’s leadership team. “This concert and the events around it will give him a chance to be heard by a worldwide audience and will allow many of us to hear this life-or-death message for the first time.”

“This is all about getting our movement on the map front and center,” added Mr. Artz, a business leader, educator, and artist with an enthusiasm for contextual activism. “We know that humanity hasn’t wanted to deal with this crisis, but we also know there are people who want to make a tangible impact. With this concert, we are inviting everyone to make this crisis of humanity their own. This is all about telling the world that everyone has the opportunity to stand up and make that kind of impact.”
