UNICEF starts plan to #imagine new future
Individual records will be used to create a globally voiced version of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine,’ which is set to be released right around New Year’s Eve.UNICEF plans to introduce several new projects to raise awareness and funds for children’s rights globally and to mark the 25th anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the Child.
UNICEF has launched an interactive digital experience called #IMAGINE program which allows people across the world to record their own version of legendary John Lennon’s song “Imagine” and share it with the rest of the world.
These records will be used to create a globally voiced version of the song, which is set to be released right around New Year’s Eve. “In collaboration with David Guetta and Yoko Ono, we are bringing the world together to create the largest sing-along ever.
Lend your voice and be a part of history. Download the free TouchCast app, sing your version of Imagine with John Lennon and share with friends,” said UNICEF in its program’s website.
In the meantime, UNICEF also released a report titled “The State of the World’s Children” and calls for “brave and fresh thinking” to address problems that still affect the most disadvantaged children.
In particular, the report calls for innovation which would bring solutions to benefit every child.
“The report highlights how new ways of solving problems – often emerging from local communities and young people themselves – can help us overcome age-old inequities that prevent millions of children from surviving, thriving and making the most of their potential,” said UNICEF in its report.
