For over 20 years, Lucerne Festival has been committed to the issue of sustainability. Now the festival is expanding its activities further and, together with Zurich Insurance, is launching the "Musicians for Future" initiative, which focuses on commitment to a better future. The communication idea developed by Freundliche Grüsse for this: Music is sustainable per se. Classical music consumes nothing in production, instruments last a long time, music lasts forever.
This idea is brought to life through various measures. First of all, young, committed musicians have their say: Igor Levit, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Reto Bieri and Johanna Malangré. In short spots, the artists are filmed playing their instruments and shown how this creates sustainability. On the website, they also share their ideas for a better future. The agency Monami is responsible for the implementation of the film, content and social media productions.
The Musicians for Future initiative is creating a buzz with panel discussions during the summer festival, a multi-week social media campaign and a dedicatedWebsiteattention to the topic. The aim is to stimulate a discussion on the topic of sustainability. The aim is to inspire and motivate each individual to make a contribution to a better future.
