Raving and protecting the rainforest aren’t two things you’d usually put together, however this summer there’s been a direct link between the two, thanks to a brilliant new initiative. Over the summer, thousands of ravers descend on the White Isle, with many if not most visiting two of the island’s top superclubs; Hï Ibiza and Ushuaia. During the season, these two internationally known venues have helped protect over 5,000 acres of rainforest, in a bid to help tackle climate change.
The project D41m (Dance for One Meter) is powered by each and every raver who’s set foot in the venues this year, with tickets purchased throughout the season all contributing to the cause. Sell out parties from the likes of Eric Prydz, ANTS, Glitterbox and more have all aided the cause from tickets sold.
D41M partner and CEO of nightlife organisation; The Night League, Yann Pissenem gave his assessment on the project so far,
‘It’s an honour to be part of such an important and worthwhile project. Deforestation is one of the biggest environmental issues facing our 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!’
