A five-hour, live global telecast, featuring international celebrities and dignitaries, intended to create awareness of environmental issues and to urge universal cooperation in solving ecological problems. 

Broadcast primarily from Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, in New York City, the telecast was relayed to over 100 countries.

The program interspersed musical performances from New York, the Soviet Union, England, Australia, Poland, Norway and Brazil with taped pro-environmental messages from world leaders.

Guest musicians for this 5 hour telecast ("Our Common Future") were Herbie Hancock, Omar Hakim, Larry Klein and Wayne Shorter - and Sting [in Rio de Janeiro]. 

Sting, in a statement, made a connection between the poverty of Brazilians who are logging in the Amazon rain forest and Brazil's crushing national debt. 

Some of the performances, even truncated by advertising, were worthwhile. 

Among them were Sting with Brazil's superstars: Gal Costa, Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, never credited onscreen.
