Gordon Matthew Summer, better known as Sting, is a singer, songwriter and activist world-famous for his role as lead singer of the successful British band The Police. Along with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers, The Police conquered the music world in the 70s and 80s, winning six Grammy Awards and two Brits, as well as being included in The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

After the band's breakup, Sting's solo career also enjoyed great international success. As a solo artist, Sting has won 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy and has been nominated four times for the Oscars. In addition, his name is also included in The Songwriters Hall of Fame. Sting has sold over 100 million albums as a solo artist and as a member of The Police.

Sting is also a prominent human rights and environmental activist. His support for organizations such as Amnesty International and Live Aid has had a global impact. Sting is the founder of the Rainforest Fund, a foundation that seeks to protect the rainforests and the indigenous peoples who inhabit them. Sting has done much to raise awareness of our planet's limited resources, raising funds through multiple benefit concerts.

In 1988, he was part of the historic Human Rights Now! tour organized by Amnesty International on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, accompanied by artists such as Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As a keynote speaker, Sting addresses the challenges of climate change and the planet's finite resources, and raises social awareness of human rights in different global communities, especially among indigenous populations.
