Music and conservation
Saving the world's coral reefs through music might just no be the first solution that comes to one's mind, but critical times call for creative solutions.
With that in mind, several centre researchers joined famous Swedish soprano saxophonist Anders Paulsson in a Stockholm gala evening in support of the world's coral reefs.
The event, which took place at "Musikaliska" (Royal Academy of Music) on in 2011 urged musicians, scientists and practitioners to join forces in saving the world's coral reefs.
Music as an act of change
The seminar featured centre director JohanRockström, science director Carl Folke as well as researchers Magnus Nyström,Fredrik Moberg and Per Olsson.
They have all extensive experience in doing coral reef research. Other contributors included Gerardo Ledesma, founder of the Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Peter Raines, founder and CEO of Coral Cay Conservation, Kajsa Garpe, coral reef ecologist and fish expert, Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and students from Globala Gymnasiet (the Global College) in Stockholm.
"It goes without saying that music can not save the world's coral reefs, but history is replete with examples of how music can act as a force for change. In this spirit, this combined concert and seminar will focus on finding solutions on how we can reverse current global trends of coral reef degradation," says Per Olsson.
