BILLY BLAKE, SINGER (RUSSIA)
I really hope that people will see COVID-19 not only as a threat but also a call to action to live differently. I hope that people will understand that they and the planet are one. I want to talk about issues, and I want to make taking care of the environment a real fashion. I want people to understand that when they throw garbage somewhere, they will have to answer for it.
And the COVID-19 is not the scariest of the planet's responses to us humans. Stability is created by people, but it is false, as is our idea of it. Pride overshadowed our minds and we felt like the masters of the world, but a small virus put everyone in their place! I am afraid that people will quickly forget what happened and return to their former lives. I want them to understand why they have to wear masks now.
