Music video for the EINE WELT song "Qui s'élèvera?"

A professional music video for the EINE WELT song (ONE WORLD song) "Qui s'élèvera?" by Hari Sue feat. Albert N'sanda was produced. The winning song, which accompanies the tenth round of the School Competition on Development Policy as a musical anthem, addresses the global exploitation of natural resources, such as the loss of the treasures of our forests - animals losing their habitat through clearing and deforestation, raw materials being turned into money - and asks: "Who will raise their voice to put an end to all the damage?" And this message is also expressed in the official music video!

For the album version as well as for the music video, the 26-year-old Freiburg-based Hari Sue received support in the form of a special feature - namely from musician and Song Contest patron Albert N'sanda.

Watch the video and let yourself be inspired by the strong message of the video and the song.

Music, empowerment and strong messages at the EINE WELT weekend in Leipzig

Exciting inputs, rousing coaching sessions and plenty of space for exchange on topics of global development – from 25 to 27 November 2022, around 400 youths, young adults and teachers were able to network and develop ideas for sustainable action at the EINE WELT weekend (ONE WORLD weekend) in Leipzig.

What global challenges are we currently facing? How can young people take on these challenges and help shape the future of One World? And how can commitment to One World be combined with music? Ideas, inspiration and points of contact to these questions were offered at the EINE WELT weekend in numerous workshops and training courses and in various, partly musical, hands-on activities. The presenters Andi Schulze and Rico Montero inspired and empowered the young people with their energy.

A special highlight: Winners of the Song Contest and the School Competition also performed their songs for One World on stage. As a surprise guest, long-time Song Contest supporter Fargo performed at the concert and made the crowd cheer!
