Record producer Quincy Jones and singers Barbra Streisand and Cher took part in the United Nations Human Rights’ “Call for Code” initiative in an event on Saturday, which is also the United Nations’ “World Environment Day.”
Singers Carole King, Rod Stewart, Melissa Etheridge, Sia, and Kesha also joined the call for developers to deal with “climate change” issues, according to a report by Rolling Stone.
The social media initiative is “a call to action, encouraging developers and innovators to use cutting-edge technologies to immediately create solutions for critical issues stemming from the global climate change.”
The stars involved in the initiative were also joined by singers Perry Farrell, Pitbull, and Tegan & Sara, and actors Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Pierce Brosnan, Don Cheadle, as well as Bravo’s Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.
The Call for Code initiative is reportedly a partnership between the David Clark Cause, U.N. Human Rights, and IBM
