Dance for One Meter launches as “biggest environmental initiative in dance music history”
Dance for One Meter allows partygoers to help save the rainforest, one dance at a time.
The D41M initiative was launched on the 8th of August with a goal to be “the biggest environment initiative in dance music history”- casual.
Some of their early partners include Hi Ibiza, HRBR Project NYC, Paul Oakenfold and Judge Jules.
How does it work?
Partygoers have an opportunity to save 1 meter of rainforest when purchasing tickets to events hosted by D41M partners.
It’s not just an out of sight purchase either.
Guests are able to redeem and zoom into their coordinates on the Cuipo Foundation Rainforest Preserve in Brazil using Satellite and Google Earth technology.
Festival Goers Unite!
D41M was founded by Ricardo Porteus and Tom Murray, who drew inspiration from Burning Man to unite festival goers world-wide in an initiative to save the Rainforest.
In a press release Porteus spoke about their excitement: “The D41M project is rolling out globally, so far everyone we have spoken to has agreed to join our initiative, it’s such a humbling feeling to know that this is happening and it’s happening on a large scale right now! The D41M initiative is growing with Paul Oakenfold and Judge Jules now supporting us, alongside celebrity names in environmental protection and thought leadership being announced soon.”
Yann Pissenem, who is the owner, CEO and artistic director of Hi Ibiza added: ¨I am very happy and proud to be part of such an important, amazing and worthwhile project. Deforestation is one of the biggest environmental issues facing the planet and to be able to partner with the D41M team is incredible. Being able to harness the power of clubbing in Ibiza and technology to make a difference on a global scale is an opportunity we had to be involved with.”
Dance For One Meter and we can help save our beautiful planet. Any South African promoters keen to get involved?
