Project Zero & DF Concerts are thrilled to announce an amazing night of live music featuring some of Scotland’s finest artists from a range of genres, all who have come together to support our biggest weapon in the fight against the climate crisis, the ocean.
The first show of the “Concerts for Climate” series will take place at Scottish venue King Tuts Wah-Wah Hut on Thursday 11th November 2021, and is set to become the first in a series of global music events produced by Project Zero.
Twin Atlantic, Admiral Fallow, RURA, The Ninth Wave, Rachel Sermanni, Blue Rose Code, Tamzene and The National Youth Pipe Band are all confirmed to perform at the concert.
Folk band RURA says “It’s a real privilege to be part of this show alongside so many great artists and friends. In bringing people together to enjoy a great night, this event and many others like it will hopefully go some way to raising awareness and encouraging discussion around the climate crisis”
Tickets go on general sale Friday 22nd October at 10am from King Tuts.
All proceeds from the “Concerts for Climate” series will fund a global network of projects that protect and restore the ocean and blue carbon ecosystems (mangroves, seagrass meadows and tidal marshes). To learn more about these projects, visit weareprojectzero.org/projects
“We are honoured to host the very first Project Zero Concerts for Climate at King Tut’s, in the host city of COP26, Glasgow. It is so important that we tackle climate change now and, this concert series will help draw attention to the fact our oceans are our biggest weapon in fighting the climate emergency.” – Susan Kerr, King Tut’s.
“We’re enormously grateful to DF Concerts and these incredible Scottish bands who are lending their exceptional voices to help us restore the ocean and turn the tide on the climate crisis. The ocean is our planet’s biggest carbon sink. It is estimated that 93% of the earth’s CO2 is stored or cycled through the ocean. The ocean holds 97% of Earth’s water, and supports a great abundance of life on the planet. Today the ocean is sick. We need to restore the ocean to health to save our planet. We can reverse the damage, but we must act now.” – Michele Clarke, CEO/Founder, Project Zero
The ocean is the biggest carbon dioxide absorber on the planet. With only 2% currently protected, the ocean has become much less efficient in the fight to tackle the climate crisis. Together with a team of leading scientists, Project Zero have developed individual projects from the Arctic to the Antarctic which set out to put 30% of the ocean under protection to turn the tide on the climate crisis.
“The ocean covers approximately 71% of Earth’s surface. It’s our biggest ally in the fight against the climate crisis. We need everyone’s help in restoring the ocean to save our planet.” – Alexandra Richards, DJ, Model and Project Zero Board Member
“The ocean is vital to all life on Earth. At Project Zero, we’re working to protect and restore the ocean to create a sustainable future for life on Earth.” – Georgia May Jagger, Model, Entrepreneur and Project Zero Ambassador
