On the occasion of Beethoven’s 250th birthday, the Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH and the UN Climate Change Secretariat have launched the Beethoven Pastoral Project to call on creative people around the world to be inspired by Beethoven’s 6th Symphony (Pastoral) and set an example for climate protection.

On June 5, 2020, World Environment Day of the United Nations, in addition to a moderated Livestream on the homepage pastoralproject.org, the first artistic statements and projects on the subject of culture and sustainability will be presented by over 250 artists and ensembles from six continents.

Originally, numerous concerts and live events were planned in the context of the anniversary celebrations BTHVN2020 around World Environment Day, both nationally and internationally. Now the Beethoven Pastoral Project is becoming a digital event with a varied online offer and a socio-political statement.

The live-program will be streamed on June 5, 2020, from 06 p.m. CEST by Deutsche Welle and repeated several times to reach interested parties around the world (on June 6, at 02.00 a.m. (CEST) for the South-American region and 02.00 p.m. (CEST) for the Asian continent).
