YouthMundus is thrilled to announce that 2019’s festival theme song is STAND UP by the incredibly talented Elijah Jamal


“we’ve been torn, torn down, way too long

 we can’t. take this anymore

 fight back, we must as one 

 rise up, we must, stand up” 


To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

The powerful and important lyrics behind STAND UP speak to the timeliness and need for proactive action by more people around the world. It’s only by standing united, and standing together as one, that we will be able to not only achieve the positive change we want to see in the world but also prove that we will not take anymore of the degradative and negative influences that the world’s decision makers have thrown at us. We will not give up, and as the song so compellingly captures, we will “fight back, rise up” for “we must, stand up”.
