Take action against Climate Change!
DJs Against Climate Change is entering it's 5th year of helping DJs offset the environmentally damaging carbon emissions produced from their airplane travel. With the rise in popularity of Electronic Dance Music, more artists than ever are traversing the globe in order to play for live audiences. These flights contribute millions of tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, but are unavoidable in order for DJs to perform. As participants in DJACC, we recognize this negative aspect in our line of work and use our cultural influence to show how everyone can take responsibility for their impact on Climate Change.
Last year we banded together to offset 457,000 Lbs of CO2, equivalent to over one million miles worth of air travel. Let's do even better in 2012!
Your contributions will go to myclimate and fund climate conscious development around the world.
myclimate is a Swiss non-profit organization which provides carbon offsets; funding towards projects that reduce climate-impacting emissions. Whether providing methane reducing biodigesters in India, energy efficient stoves in Kenya or similar efforts around the world, myclimate funds serve the additional impact of fostering sustainable development in the project regions. To learn more about myclimate and their specific initiatives, visit their website.
Did You know? You can write-off your carbon offset contribution as a business expense on your 2012 taxes.
How can I participate?
Send us your home city and tour dates for 2012 using the Submission Form and we'll calculate your unique carbon emissions from airline travel for the year . You can then choose to offset the entire amount, or anything in between. If you'd like a hands on approach, do it yourself using the MyClimate calculator.
If you don't need to know your exact emissions, use the suggested contributions to offset a carbon level that matches your amount of travel or what you can afford to give.
Support the Cause
if you're a DJ who doesn't fly a lot, or even if you're just a fan of DJs and this cause, please consider giving. There is no way we can offset the carbon emissions from all the DJs in our community, so every little bit helps increase the money we send towards offset projects around the world!
Please participate in DJs Against Climate Change at whatever level you can. The more people get involved, the more we raise awareness.
