The Big Climate Thing, scheduled for September 16-18 at Forest Hills Stadium, NYC has been postponed.

The artists, climate movement leaders and partners of this event take the responsibility of representing those fighting for survival on the front lines of ecological disaster and environmental justice incredibly seriously. Collectively, we felt that if we couldn’t produce the event in a way that met the high standards for participation, impact and sustainability that are the foundation of The Big Climate Thing, then it was the responsible choice to postpone until we can.

Compared with the climate emergency itself, a concert postponement is hardly important news. However, for the fans who purchased tickets, the teams that have been working tirelessly behind the scenes, the climate organizations and activists who have been integral to the mission of this project and the speakers and artists who were the heart and soul of the event, we are so grateful to have had this chance to form a vital community with you centered on creativity and climate optimism. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the climate crisis it’s that one must adapt to survive.

With humility and gratitude, we look forward to bringing a renewed The Big Climate Thing back in 2023 to create a platform for those who truly inspire us with their commitment to creating a more just, equitable and habitable planet. And some of the best music on Earth.

Hang it to dry.

Big Climate Tip #3

Beware of Vampires!

Unplug electronics and appliances when not in use. They suck (power).

If you are in control of your electricity supply, Switch to 100% renewables.

It takes 10 minutes to switch.

Big Climate Tip #5

Whenever possible, Walk, bike, skate, ski, sled, slide, swim, sail, zipline (or take public transport)

Big Climate Tip #6

Only having a single cup of tea?

Don’t boil a full kettle of water.

Big Climate Tip #7

Eat More Vegetables.

Producing plant-based foods generally results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions and requires less energy, land, and water.

Big Climate Tip #8

Consider your travel.

Airplanes burn large amounts of fossil fuels. Take a train whenever possible.

Big Climate Tip #9

Throw Away Less Food

When food rots in a landfill it produces greenhouse gas. Compost your food waste. Whenever possible.

Big Climate Tip #10


Items we buy cause carbon emissions at each point in production, packaging, transport. Buy Fewer Things.

Big Climate Tip #11


Shop second-hand. Repurpose items for multiples uses. An old t-shirt can make a great tote bag.

Big Climate Tip #12


Before you replace broken or worn out items, try to repair them. Knee patches are sooooo cool.

Use Your Voice

Speak up about climate change and sustainable lifestyle choices. Talk to neighbors, colleagues, friends and family.

Big Climate Tip #18

Electric Vehicles

If you’re fortunate enough to be able to purchase a vehicle, make sure it’s electric. Even if it’s charged on a grid using fossil fuels, it’s a major reduction in emissions.

Big Climate Tip #19

Try for Zero Waste

Challenge yourself to go one day without producing any waste. Then try two days. Then three. Recruit others to try and make it a friendly competition.

Big Climate Tip #20

Join or Create a Community!
