ITSLIQUID Partners

Starting from ANIMA MUNDI Festival 2019, ITSLIQUID Group will begin a charity initiative aimed to support some of the most important no-profit organizations that are internationally involved in the environmental protection. This choice comes from the essence of ANIMA MUNDI in which everything is related to the living entities of the planet: it is the moving engine that drives all Earth’s ecosystems in a way that they find their perfect equilibrium. The goal of this partnership is to increase public awareness about environmental issues, like the climate change and the pollution, while promoting renewable energies, recycling initiatives and environmental protection. Thanks to you and to artists’ help, we will plant trees, clean oceans and defend wildlife animals. More in details, ITSLIQUID Group supports the following organizations: UNFCCC – United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, SSCS – Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, One Tree Planted, The Ocean CleanUp and Plastic Oceans.

The UNFCCC secretariat was established in 1992 when countries adopted the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. With the subsequent adoption of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 and the Paris Agreement in 2015, Parties to these three agreements have progressively reaffirmed the secretariat’s role as the United Nations entity tasked with supporting the global response to the threat of climate change.
MISSION – The secretariat supports a complex architecture of bodies that serve to advance the implementation of the Convention, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement. The secretariat provides technical expertise and assists in the analysis and review of climate change information reported by Parties and in the implementation of the Kyoto mechanisms. It also maintains the registry for Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) established under the Paris Agreement, a key aspect of implementation of the Paris Agreement.
VISION – The secretariat organizes and supports between two and four negotiating sessions each year. The largest and most important is the Conference of the Parties, held annually and hosted in different locations around the globe. It is the largest annual United Nations conference, attended on average by around 25,000 participants. In addition to these major conferences, the secretariat organizes annual sessions of the so-called subsidiary bodies as well as a large number of meetings and workshops throughout the year.

One Tree Planted is a non-profit founded in Shelburne, Vermont. It works with amazing reforestation organizations around the world that need financial support to help them get more trees in the ground.
MISSION – It started in 2014 with a mission to make it simple for people to help the environment: “One dollar. One tree”.
VISION – It partners with carefully selected reforestation organizations in 4 regions: North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.

It pools the donations for each project and sends the funds to its reforestation partners, enabling them to cover the costs required to get these trees in the ground.

The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization, developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
MISSION – Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean. A significant percentage of this plastic drifts into large systems of circulating ocean currents, also known as gyres. Once trapped in a gyre, the plastic breaks down into microplastics and becomes increasingly easier for marine life to mistake for food. That is why The Ocean Cleanup is developing a passive system, moving with the currents – just like the plastic – to catch it.
VISION – By utilizing the ocean currents to its advantage, the passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years’ time.

Plastic Oceans’ goal is to end plastic pollution, by changing the global attitude toward plastic within a generation, affecting consumer behavior.
VISION – The organization develops plastic pollution awareness initiatives around inspirational, solutions-focused film, media and other content, targeting school children, public policy, and consumer behavior. It builds issue and public policy awareness with companies, influencers, media and policy makers, implementing a supportive conduct activism to stop plastic pollution.
