Today is World Environment Day and that is what our playlist this week is all about. There are some older tracks mixed in with newer Canadian Indie tracks. The songs are about environmental issues or just songs about earth, water, trees and nature in general. There is a full nearly 9 hour long playlist and a 2 hour condensed version.
World Environment Day is the most renowned day for environmental action. Since 1974, it has been celebrated every year on 5 June: engaging governments, businesses, celebrities and citizens to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.
In 2020, the theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States, and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa – and now, a global disease pandemic – demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life, in which they exist.

Music is a great way to get a message out and to bring awareness. Themed playlists are also just a fun way to hear some great music. I hope this playlist does both.
