      Green In Every Scene - Special Edition w/ Justdiggit

      After the successful debut in November last year, The Media Nanny & Epicenter Amsterdam proudly present to you the third edition of ‘Green In Every Scene’. On Thursday June 20th, a speaker from Justdiggit takes the stage to officially introduce The Raindance Project to the public. An introduction video of The Raindance Project can be found here. Since there is no movement without rhythm, Justdiggit introduces The Raindance Project: a series of simultaneous biannual live concerts, to showcase the potential of landscape restoration to the world, and raise funds for Justdiggit projects in Africa. Through music, events and a global media format, they aim to inspire and activate farmers, citizens, governments, NGOs and companies worldwide to accelerate the re-greening of our planet. In Africa, publicly accessible and free of charge Raindance events will be held in rural and drought-stricken areas, to inspire and activate millions of farmers across the continent to re-green their own land. This has never been done before. Justdiggit: "The more we share climate solutions with the world, the more perspective we offer people to tackle climate change together. Recent studies show that nature-based solutions can contribute up to 37 % of the carbon emission intake required to keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius. This can be achieved by restoring an area twice the size of Europe (which can be restored according to The Nature Conservancy) this potential consists of rangeland, forests & wetlands. In doing so we can provide water, food, biodiversity and a better life for millions of people and animals." The third edition of ‘Green In Every Scene’ will yet again be hosted at Epicenter Amsterdam; the first “innovation house” in Amsterdam, dedicated to innovation and development. Epicenter is located at the Amsterdam Zuidas, where established corporations, as well as smaller, entrepreneurial companies with proven business models, can meet to share knowledge. Once again, we are looking forward to another inspiring afternoon with an inspirational speaker on behalf of Justdiggit. They will tell you more about how their company works towards re-greening the environment and how they implement strategies through innovation. After the talks, we will bring back our pub quiz in which the winner takes it all and wins an unique item related to The Raindance Project. We are ending this inspirational day with drinks. 17:00 - Walk in @ Epicenter Amsterdam17:30 - Start talk by Dennis Karpers - Co-founder of Justdiggit19:00 - Pubquiz19:30 - Drinks The Media Nanny, Justdiggit & Epicenter Amsterdam are looking forward to welcoming you on Thursday the 20th of June!
