"Honouring Our Mother Earth" - H.O.M.E. Project

Use your voice to draw attention to sustainability!

Sing in the musicvideo and record yourself singing the song
The song 'Honouring our mother Earth' will be released on June 5 on the UN World Environment Day.
It will feature both solo singers and choir voices from around the globe, and the target is to show that we are many people across the world that would like to bring more attention to sustainability and living in harmony with nature and it goes beyond culture, relgion, colour, background, age and gender. You dont need to be a professional singer or artist to join. You can even dance to the song if you like. The song will also include voices from different native traditions of the world. We have recieved around 100 voices from over 25 countries and we are now doing the final production

Initiator
My name is Peter Elmberg, and I am from Sweden. In 1996 I studied Native American Studies in Wisconsin, USA, and got inspired by the saying, “Think seven generations ahead before any important decision.” I’ve been engaged in the field of sustainability since then, and I'd like to show my deepest respect and support to children and youth all over the world, bringing awareness to the climate issue today. I have written 2 musicals and more than 1000 songs since 1991 to various projects. I created the label "Music for Peace" in 2004 where I have released the following "Earth Anthems" supporting children and youth. "Now is the time" (Swedens answer to "We are the world", 2005)  "A song for Tibet"(2008), "One world" (Project for Westafrica 2015), "12 Peace Prayers" (2016) etc. Apart from songwriting I am also the founder and CEO of the ecological retreatcenter Mundekulla in southern Sweden since 1998.
