Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza combat rainforest deforestation
When guests attend events at Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa this summer, they will have the opportunity to pay an optional 1€ to reserve and save 1sqm of Rainforest when purchasing tickets online. By using Satellite and Google Earth technology, each guest can redeem and zoom into their coordinates on the Cuipo Foundations Rainforest Preserve in Brazil.
The Night League CEO & artistic director Yann Pissenem said:
“We’re so proud to be a part of such an important initiative. We launched the partnership last year with Hï Ibiza and we are really excited to be able to expand it to Ushuaïa this year so that more people can get involved. Deforestation is one of the biggest environmental issues affecting the planet and we hope everyone continues the good work this year and donates to this really worthwhile cause.”
Ricardo Porteus from D41M said:
“Have fun, save rainforest is the message! By uniting and dancing together we will save and protect an area of rainforest the same size as Ibiza!”
Every second of every minute of every day one football field of Rainforest is lost due to deforestation. 70% of all cancer eliminating medicine properties originate in the Rainforest. Deforestation creates more carbon emissions than any other industry on the planet. The impact on our lives at a global level is serious if action isn’t taken right now. No more talking, it’s time to Dance For One meter and help make a difference.
The Dance For One Meter (D41M) project is founded by Ricardo Porteus and Tom Murray, who had a chance meeting at the Burning Man festival in Nevada where they conceived the potential of how uniting every person attending global festivals and events could make a positive impact on Rainforest protection. By simply having fun whilst saving the Rainforest, one person, one ticket, one meter on mass will generate the biggest environmental initiative in dance music history.
