The peace and protests movements of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s were defined by the arts and in particular the music. Songs such as “Give Peace a Chance,” “We Shall Overcome” and “I Ain’t Marching Anymore” are some of the thousands of songs we continue to remember, love and sing to this day. Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez are just a few of the myriad artists who devoted their lives and craft to movement.
The ecology and climate change movements have been defined primarily by scientific study and often bitter political debate. However, one is hard pressed to recall songs or artists that symbolize and define the movements. The Creative Ecology initiative is designed to bring the dynamic creative artistic to the movement. The Please Let us Be video featured below was produced by www.ecoalliances.com & www.woodstockdreams.com and is the first in a series in production. EcoAlliances is dedicated to mobilizing the creative spirit to carry us through these troubling times.
Woodstock Creative Ecology Festival
A Woodstock Creative Artistic Festival is being planned.
- Arts in Ecology. The Woodstock 1969 concert was a defining moment for the peace & protest movement. We at EcoAlliances believe that Woodstock should again take the lead in developing and musical and artistic movement for ecology. The Woodstock Creative Ecology Festival is designed to tap into the enormous wealth of dynamic and vibrant artistic and musical talent in the village Woodstock once again. The ecology movement is in need of a creative voice to carry us through these challenging times and we intend to help mobilize this constructive artistic vision & force.

Woodstock Creative Ecology Initiative
The peace and protests movements of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s were largely defined by the music and the arts. “Give Peace a Chance” and “We Shall Overcome” are exemplary of the thousands of inspiring songs we recall and sing to this day. Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez are among the countless musicians devoting their intensely creative lives and voices to the initiatives.
In contrast, the ecology and climate change movements have been primarily characterized by scientific data interspersed with often acrimonious political debate. The Cooper Lake – Niagara Bottling controversy brought these issues to our door step. Despite the emotionally charged agendas, one is hard pressed to recall songs or artists symbolizing and defining the ecology initiatives. How many ecology and climate change songs have made it to the top 100 of the music charts? Few if any.
We at EcoAlliances are trying to change this through a Creative Ecology initiative. We have produced a music video on our reforestation initiative entitled “Please Let Us Be” www.ecoalliances.com/video with Woodstock’s Marji Zintz. We also recorded Woodstock’s Journey Blue Heaven passionately singing her original song on Saving Cooper Lake www.savingcooperlake.org/video.
EcoAlliances is now organizing a Woodstock Creative Ecology Festival www.ecoalliances.com/creative-ecology to mobilize the dynamic and vibrant musical and artistic talent of village Woodstock and surround. The ecology initiative is in dire need of creative voices and artistic talents to provide the movement with a heart, soul and vision. A vibrant artistic core is essential to mobilizing communities to take desperately needed action. The 1969 Woodstock concert was a defining moment for the peace & protest movement. We believe that Woodstock can and should lead the way once more in this global challenge.
