Climate Neutral DJ

As an international DJ and citizen oft he World, I fly a lot. As a child of Mother Earth this makes me wonder: How can I reduce my carbon footprint and contribute to a healthy planet? I aim at being a climate neutral DJ. If you are an event organizer and want to book me for your festival outside of Germany, please support certified climate protection projects with your donation–or organize a tree planting project at your festival, for example. I can also calculate my emissions and do the donation. In that case I will ask you to add that amount to my pay. To learn more about this topic and to calculate emissions, have a look at atmosfair, a climate protection organisation with a focus on travel. If you have questions about how to make your event sustainable, contact environmental scientist and eco consultant Marius Beyer (mariusbeyer@live.de).
