A new video released on Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee takes viewers around the Commonwealth and underscores the importance of cooperation to protect the ocean.
With ocean life quality declining worldwide, all 54 Commonwealth governments are working together to protect the ocean through the Commonwealth Blue Charter – an agreement adopted at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in 2018 to meet commitments for sustainable ocean development.
A new video, Life Lived With Grace, highlights the importance of this mission.
Commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat and The Commonwealth Resounds, the video features the winning lyrics for the Platinum Jubilee song, A Life Lived With Grace. The video is composed and arranged by young composer Seamus Heath, with video editing support from Rex Russell.
Alison Cox, Founder and Trustee of The Commonwealth Resounds and Head of Composition at the Purcell School for Young Musicians has hoped the video will inspire and encourage young people around the world to get involved.
“I see incredible talent in my students; they have so much potential combined with a strong desire to care for world they are living in,” she noted.
“At the brink of a climate crisis and just emerging from the global pandemic, many of our young people are keen to find new ways to help and support the natural world and in particular, the health of the oceans.
“For many reasons, this special Platinum Jubilee year is unlike any other. A Life Lived With Grace is a video for our times.”
