Earth to Paris, a coalition of global partners driving awareness about the connection between people and planet, on Monday released a high impact video promoting the global #EarthToParis movement that took place on 7 December, 2015, in Paris. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the video serves as a crowdsourced love letter from Earth to Paris for world leaders to take action on climate change.

“Allegro Prestissimo,” performed by Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin courtesy of Sony Music Entertainment, plays as the vibrant video reveals several famous #EarthtoParis supporters such as Richard Branson, Gisele Bündchen, Kid President (Robby Novak), Pharrell Williams, Cameron Russell, Ram Dass, Jack Black and many more. The video also includes an assortment of people from around the world who have sent video messages to their world leaders.

In the video, Freeman (as the Earth) reads, “Dear Paris, there is no voice more beautiful than the voice of the world speaking as one, and the world has spoken. This is about all of us—everything we know, everyone we love, and our survival.”

This video follows the first Earth To Paris anthem video which received over 6 million views in its first week.

The Earth To Paris coalition invites people everywhere to unite their voices this week for bold climate action so that Earth’s voice is heard during the negotiations at the United Nations Climate Summit—COP21. Earth To Paris kicked off 7 December at 12:00 am CET with a 36-hour global digital surge of Twitter chats, Google Hangouts, and locally hosted watch parties and digital events in at least 19 countries across all six inhabited continents.

The Earth To Paris Coalition consists of more than 110 partners—including the City of Paris, Facebook, Swarovski and Twitter—with a social reach of over 200 million individuals globally.
