Last month the UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP) sponsored the #ConcertForAHealthyPlanet. Millions of people worldwide tuned in from their homes to watch Grammy Award winner and UNESCO MGIEP Global Kindness Ambassador Ricky Kej and a world ensemble of 44 musicians and dancers from 13 cities in 6 countries including: India, USA, Canada, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Switzerland.
The Concert launched the #KindnessAnthem developed for the MGIEP #KindnessMatters Global Campaign which aims to mobilize young people worldwide to carry out transformative acts of kindness to solve the world’s problems and create a positive culture of kindness.

The #KindnessMatters global campaign has collected more than 7,300 stories of amazing young people undertaking transformative acts of kindness especially during these challenging times of the Coronavirus. Read their stories to be inspired to add your own or someone’s story of kindness today.
UNESCO MGIEP focuses on achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4.7 towards education for building peaceful and sustainable societies across the world by developing programs that promote social and emotional learning, innovate digital pedagogies and empower the youth.
As the ongoing COVID19 Pandemic continues to challenge the way we work, travel and socialize, let us not forget to #BeKind and recognise that this is a call for humanity to unite. UNESCO MGIEP continues to put the spotlight on everyday heroes from across the globe who are going that extra mile in these testing times.
