DITTY – SONGS FOR FORESTS
October 30 2022 at 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
We’re traveling through 6 cities in India, singing in gardens and collaborating with local environmentalists to start important conversations around climate change, sacred ecology, communal regeneration and transformation. We are aiming for the tour to be low in emissions and pollution + carbon neutral. We hope to plant forests and restore lands as we go.
We will be screening a documentary from Ditty’s last attempt to make carbon-neutral touring possible. Make forests not war tour was started in March 2020. We had completed 4 cities but had to postpone the remaining 5 due to COVID-19. This is our attempt to get back on the road and share our journey with all of you.
