The Sixth Festival

Chicago - New York - Worldwide

We are at the beginning of the sixth mass extinction on earth

Intimately linked to the climate crisis, the last mass extinction was the comet that killed the dinosaurs and most life on earth, but this one isn’t a comet.

It’s us.

That means we can stop it.

Our leaders are asleep at the wheel. Those in positions to address and gather the public are too often silent, if not outright lying and accelerating us toward destruction.

We mean to end that silence.

it's up to us

If leaders will not gather and do something,
we will.

We’re calling for all hands on deck to hold events and celebrations of all types — music, forums, theatre, backflip contests, anything! — to end the silence and to stop the sixth mass extinction.

Take part in making a better, living future...
