Message 5 – New Hope for North Kivu: Let’s Preserve our Environment – Virunga

“New Hope” is the voice of a whole generation is North Kivu, a generation that wants to protect and preserve its forest and diversity, their future!

.

This song is about hope for humanity, if it retains its ecosystem, know that North Kivu, Goma my province is the second largest reserves in the world in green forest after the Amazon in Brazil, but he finds ignorance in the total degradation excess, and our governments do not worry about this situation, it is at this stage that we launched the campaign by the music as the only way to get people to understand this logic because one thing is certain, we must bequeath to future generations annuities and not burdens”

This is Danny Lukusa’s music video submission for the Voices4Climate competition hosted by Connect4Climate.

Translation of song lyrics:

NEW HOPE

.

Will we wait to see the water level rising Until we find the Nyiragongo above us?

And are we waiting to see the big bang of methane gas killing us?

And the protective tropical forest on fire?

Did we also choose to have drought And floods that leave people homeless?

This is a truth that hurts us: This burning midnight sky.

Our hopes are on fire

Apprehension for a dark heritage

It is our humanitarian duty To provide a chance for the future

To become what it is meant to: Future, providence, and hope create, a new occasion to work for good!

Ata soki to kabwani namakanisi (Also divided into different thoughts)

To ponako kamba lobi kuna (Let’s choose to protect the future)

Tina te ko boma batu pe ba niama (Do we really need to condemn our lives?)

To tikala ko pona malamu pona baye ba zo ya (Lets make good choices for the future)

Pona is ope leloyo (For the current time)

Na moteme malamu to batelape esenisi nyoso (And for the humanity, let’s preserve our diversity)

This is a truth that hurts us:

This burning midnight sky.

Our hopes are on fire

Apprehension for a dark heritage

It is our humanitarian duty

To provide a chance for the future

To become what it is meant to: Future, providence, and hope create, a new occasion to work for good!

These errors didn’t affect the base Of the hope we built

We, we have chosen to hope In more enlightened judgments

And that all human beings commit

And make the world a place in which we could live in harmony

Let’s preserve our diversity

And the quality of the environment

For the future generations

Let’s manage wildlife sustainably

Create, a new hope for engagement And to prove our commitment

He said we don’t inherit automatically from earth

We do so with a look at future generations

Let’s give the strength necessary to become reality

Create, a new occasion to work for good!”
