Simon Kerr (pictured) has long been concerned about the climate crisis and so about four years ago set up "Music for a Warming World" with the initial intent of helping people better understand the science of climate change, but now the emphasis is now on the necessary cultural shifts we must embrace.
Simon taught environmental policy at Lincoln University in New Zealand before moving to the University of Melbourne and now to La Trobe University.
Nearly all the songs on the group's playlist have been written by Simon and it is through those songs that he can apply the lessons he learned in achieving his Masters of Applied Science in Environmental Management and completing his PhD in Political Ecology.
