Ludovico Einaudi and Greenpeace - Elegy for the Arctic
21st June 2016
‘Being here has been a great experience. I could see the purity and fragility of this area with my own eyes and interpret a song I wrote to be played upon the best stage in the world. It is important that we understand the importance of the Arctic, stop the process of destruction and protect it.’
Speaking on board the Arctic Sunrise, Greenpeace Spain Arctic campaigner, Elvira Jimenez, said:
‘Despite nearly eight million people calling for a Sanctuary in the Arctic, Greenpeace Spain is very concerned that the OSPAR Commission will bow to pressure from Norway, Denmark and Iceland. These three countries are opposed to the only Convention with the power to recognise the Arctic’s environmental value by protecting a part of international Arctic waters.’
