Two of the worlds largest super clubs have joined forces to take action against climate change. Both Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza were on hand this summer to help protect 5000 acres of rainforest and support conservation project ‘Dance for 1 Meter – D41M‘.
Ricardo Porteus, the founder of the project called based in Brooklyn NYC, has collaborated with Yann Pissenem, the CEO and founder of award-winning nightlife organisation The Night League, the team responsible for both Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza to launch the #D41M campaign. Porteus is also working with global leaders in Rainforest protection and the Ethereum Blockchain company ConsenSys to deliver a high tech, transparent solution to rainforest protection. Saving these forests and regenerating rainforests globally is the fastest route to preventing climate change.
“It’s a direct positive impact on our environment and helps mitigate climate change, DJ’s including David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Black Coffee and Luciano events at Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza this summer have had sell-out crowds and the uptake on direct climate action by the clubbers has been super impressive, thank you,” Ricardo Porteus says.
“It’s an honour to be part of such an important and worthwhile project. Deforestation is one of the biggest environmental issues facing the planet and to be able to partner with the D41M team has been incredible. Being able to harness the power of clubbing in Ibiza and technology to make a difference on a global scale is something we are so proud to be involved with,” explains Yann Pissenem.
You can help stop deforestation by attending a festival or event that is partnered with #D41M. The non-profit organisation distributes 100% of the money collected directly to Rainforest Protection partners.
