The Problem

Over a billion children are impacted by poverty, disease, pollution, climate change, war & conflict, exploitation and racism around the world. Their voices are not being heard.

Covid is estimated to have made the situation 20% worse. Charities around the world are disparate, communicate little and are often competitive. They require the help of the media and creative industries to create a global communications campaign to maximize social good.

The Solution

The Listen Campaign: Celebrating Solutions to Vulnerable and Disadvantaged Children’s Problems.

Who's Listening?

A music producer who helped found the Glastonbury festival is entering the NFT market to support 1 billion children in poverty. He explains his $100 million per year campaign to harness blockchain for social good.
Producer Tony Hollingsworth has worked with companies, governments and charitable foundations on campaigns that sit at the intersection of comms, media and popular culture, including Nelson Mandela’s 70th Birthday Tribute and The Wall — Live in Berlin. Hollingsworth's latest project, the Global Listen Campaign For Vulnerable & Disadvantaged Children, aims to reach 500 million people and raise $1 billion.
In this episode of Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe chat with Tony Hollingsworth, legendary producer behind some of the most historic global issue campaigns like "Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute' and 'The Wall - Live in Berlin'.
Now, for the last few years Hollingsworth has been laying the groundwork for “The Listen Campaign", his latest project to promote awareness about underprivileged and vulnerable children across the world. Like several music-oriented campaigns he has organized since Mandela’s, this involves collaborating with artists and broadcasters. The difference is the scale
Hollingsworth, who has been behind other global efforts like "Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute" and "The Wall – Live In Berlin," is tapping into 150 creative artists from film, music and other categories to join the new campaign. The initiative is also focusing on projects from 75 of the world’s top children’s charities, and has more than 60 broadcasters providing $4 billion media exposure. The media is expected to drive at least 200 percent more exposure to these children’s issues than they usually receive
The word ‘massive’ does not really do it justice. Entitled ‘Listen’, it will reach 500 million people, feature 100 stars and artists, and it will give grants to 75 proven projects. It will continue for years, indefinitely
