DJs for Climate Action
DJs4CA formed in 2011 when a group of DJ colleagues felt compelled to do something about a negative aspect of their profession — excessive airplane travel. Beyond offsetting flights, their goal is to harness the influence of Dance Music and DJ Culture to power climate solutions and generation action.

#ItsOurTime is a campaign that asks the creative, media and cultural industries to get 2 million 18-30 year olds who are concerned about climate change to register to vote. The communications can be done through creating content, or activating partnerships with relevant brands and platforms.
#ItsOurTime is a politically neutral voter registration campaign. It is not a campaign telling people who to vote for.
Everything you need to know about the brief is here.

Friday Future Love
Friday Future Love is a collaboration experiment from Good for Nothing and Glimpse, communities for creative people who want to use their skills for good.
We’re imaginging Fridays as a day of mass planetary action, an innovation day for the future of our civilisation. A day to re-imagine, re-story and re-design. A day of active participation in our shared world, a 20% of working week rule of thumb idea. A radical collaboration day for the future of humanity, ecosystems and the millions of species that support all life. Hatched on the back of mobilising the UK creative sectors to support the youth climate strikers, early 2020 will see this experiment come to life.

An international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.
At the core of Extinction Rebellion’s philosophy is nonviolent civil disobedience. They promote civil disobedience and rebellion because They think it is necessary – asking people to find their courage and to collectively do what is necessary to bring about change.
We are promoting mass “above the ground” civil disobedience – in full public view. This means economic disruption to shake the current political system and civil disruption to raise awareness. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience that this causes.

Fridays for Future
#FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15 years old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. She posted what she was doing on Instagram and Twitter and it soon went viral.
On the 8th of September, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2-degree C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement.
The hashtags #FridaysForFuture and #Climatestrike spread and many students and adults began to protest outside of their parliaments and local city halls all over the world. This has also inspired the Belgium Thursday school strikes.

Create and Strike
Create and Strike, the global coalition of more than 160 creative companies in support of the Global Climate Strike on 20 September. They invited people to create a sign, a blimp, anything that can be used to amplify the powerful message of the climate emergency and go strike together.
Create and Strike also came up with a competition to look for the best work since Tate Modern, UK International and modern contemporary art Institution offered to place the most impactful pieces in the Tate Modern archive.

Good for Nothing
Good for Nothing started as an experiment in London in 2010. Today it’s a growing chapter based movement of skilled creative professionals, social and environmental innovators and change makers who gift their time, energy, ideas, skills and influence to support environmental and social change projects. They do this through accelerated open design processes and creative challenge based approaches using tools, formats and learnings which the co-founders have continued to develop since its launch. Good for Nothing has hatched campaigns, platforms, products, brands, films, movements, cross sector collaborations and supported thousands of individuals and communities on rapid learning journeys in pursuit of a more beautiful world.
Give what you’re good at, join a chapter or start one where you live.
