Our DJs use their craft and cultural influence to raise awareness and provoke a response to the global challenge of Climate Change.
FOR THE PLANET
Why with food?
No exaggeration. Veganism can save the world. In a nutshell, we are extracting natural resources at a pace that is much faster than those resources are capable of replenishing themselves.
What’s even worse?
We’re literally eating ourselves into extinction. That pretty much sums up our current predicament. But maybe you need some hard-hitting facts to be convinced? Here you go: 23 percent of the world’s freshwater goes to animal agriculture system, while nearly 700 million people suffer from water scarcity, and 40 percent of the world’s grain is fed to farm animals, while nearly a billion people go to bed hungry every night. If we continue relying on this farming system to produce meat, dairy, and eggs that can feed the world as our population grows from 7.5 billion (today) to 9.8 billion in 2050, we’ll need 50 percent more land and will have to produce more food in the next 40 years than in the previous 10,000 years combined.
Oh yeah, and we have that climate change issue to worry about that is also largely also being driven by our appetite for meat.
We still have a fighting chance to slow down the pace of climate change and minimize the drain on our natural resources. All we have to do is redefine our food system. The short answer? Plants! By eating plant-based you can cut your carbon footprint in half, save thousands of gallons of water a day and help redirect some of the crop calories wasted on farm animals today to feed an additional four billion people.
The question is: are you brave enough to become a vegan for the planet?
The eco-art performance, “You live Your Mark on Me” is the artist's thought-provoking work about the mark that people leave on the planet. AB proposes seven topics of reflection, one for each continent represented by performers, and invites the audience to leave a “Green Mark” on the performers to show their awareness of environmental issues.
Members of the audience who choose to participate and contribute will dip their thumbs in green paint and then physically leave their thumbprints, or "Awareness Green Mark,” on the performer's body. The performer's physique, now stamped with dozens of thumbprints, will then be part of an “art intervention," representing the mark that humans leave on Earth. Every participant will receive an exclusive pin number in their certificate of participation. The performance will be documented with photographs and video footage that will become part of the art book "You Leave Your Mark on Me."
"Thank you so much for your consideration! We hope that you will be able to contribute and collaborate with us in advancing our goal of a greener and more sustainable Earth"
