Serbia has pledged to Plant Almost 1 Billion Trees to Help Fight Climate Change and EXIT festival are leading the way.
The Serbian Government has just adopted EXIT’s Green R:Evolution initiative in which the Festival juggernaut, backed by several local environmental organizations, calls for the mass reforestation that will increase the country’s forest cover by almost 50%.
"Serbia is willing to do its share to fight climate change. We are committed to European Green Deal and with the support from our EU partners we hope to accomplish this very ambitious goal" said on this occasion Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabić.
EXIT’s plans don’t stop there as this is considered only as the first step at home, while the true goal the festival has set is to push this initiative onto global level. Various scientific researches in recent years have shown that deforestation alone causes an increase in the total carbon dioxide emissions bigger than all the transportation put together!
It is estimated that the planet reforestation increase from current 30% to at least 40% of Earth land surface could be a key factor along other efforts in fulfilling the global goal of Net Zero CO2 Emissions by 2050.
In order to further contribute to this goal, EXIT plans to gather and give visibility to numerous environmental organisations, throughout the globe, at its big 20th anniversary edition taking place from the 9th to the 12th of July 2020 at the colossal Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia.
They will be joined under the EXIT Festival’s project symbolically called LIFE STREAM, in which live broad-casts from selected performances will take on an innovative approach. For the first time in festival world, the live streams will feature additional footage with environmental videos and messages.
EXIT Festival 2020 will take place from 9th to 12th July 2020 with a line-up consisting of Tyga, James Arthur, Fatboy Slim, Boris Brejcha, Sepultura, Meduza, ARTBAT and many more to be announced.
