United Nations Foundation, Shell, Tribal Brands To Join With Artists In The Entertainment Industry To Celebrate The Global Launch Of MPowering Action

"As global population continues to rapidly grow, societies will become healthier and more prosperous. This growth will increase stress and scarcity on water, food and energy, our most vital, global resources. All sectors must work now with the youth of today and the leaders of tomorrow to better prepare for these challenges, implement solutions, and encourage personal action," said Dr. Herbert Heitmann, Executive Vice-President of External Communications for Shell. "We're thrilled to be working with the UN Foundation and its partners to empower youth everywhere to address critical issues that affect the future of our world."

Through the mPowering Action mobile application, young people will be able to explore and articulate the issues that are important to them, search a global database of nonprofit organizations to get involved with, find local meetings and/or events that focus on issues relevant to them and connect with like-minded peers throughout the world. 

Some of the first digital content on the mobile application will include songs recorded at the event, as well as an exclusive track by Timbaland and Agnes Monica.

The mPowering Action platform was originally debuted to youth leaders as part of UN-sponsored meetings at the ICPD Global Youth Forum in Bali, Indonesia in December 2012. For more information about the platform, please visit www.facebook.com/mPoweringAction and follow @mPoweringAction on Twitter.

About House for HungerIn 2011, two-time Grammy Nominee Avicii, aka Tim Bergling, and his manager, Grammy nominated executive producer Ash Pournouri, created House for Hunger, a non-profit charity created to address the growing problem of global hunger.  Bergling and Pournouri felt that the values of generosity, love and unity that house music has always been about had been given short shrift by the media.  They created House for Hunger to demonstrate the positivity of the music and its fans, while addressing the issue of hunger in a very concrete way. House for Hunger is a conduit through which Bergling and Pournouri donate and raise funds, which are then funneled to organizations that directly impact men, women and children around the world who suffer from daily undernourishment.  To date, Bergling and Pournouri have given over $1 million to House for Hunger, which was then donated to Feeding America.  More on House for Hunger: www.houseforhunger.org.
