Clubbers at Ushuaïa and Hï in Ibiza helped to protect 5,000 acres of rainforest this summer by ‘Dancing For One Meter’ and supporting rainforest conservation project D41M.

D41M was set up by Ricardo Porteus, a previous director at the Pacha Group, alongside CEO and founder of nightlife organisation The Night League, Yann Pissenem. The non-profit organisation distributes 100% of the money it collects from ticket sales directly to rainforest protection partners.

Ricardo Porteus said: “Its 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 have held events at Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza this summer with sell-out crowds, and the uptake on direct climate action by the clubbers has been super impressive. Thank you to everyone who contributed.”

Yann Pissenem said: “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.”

On Tuesday 9 October the IPCC announced we have 12 years to reduce 1.5 degrees or we cross the tipping point in climate change. Rainforests deforestation accounts for up to 30% of all CO2 emissions.

D41M wants clubbers and promoters globally to have fun and save the rainforest at the same time. To join now and connect your event, visit dancefor1m.com.
