Description

Cocktails for the Planet are back! This time, it’s to help the humans and elephants of this planet. One thing these two species have in common: they like to drink alcohol. And we have come a long way in this enterprise. So much so that for this evening, we will be partnering with Elephant Gin, a German distillery crafting spirits inspired, and in defence of, the most beautiful wildlife of our planet.

In betahaus Neukolln’s beautiful garden again, G&Ts will be served to raise funds for one of the main drivers of elephant decline: land conflict with humans. Also planned are activities, talks and as usual, amazing Playlists for the Planet as the soundtrack of this moment of our lives. This event will be raising funds for Earthworm Foundation, an organisation working to solve human-elephant conflicts in Malaysia.

Bring your own cup so that a) we can leave as little trace as possible and b) you get to choose the volume of your drink. Saving 2 birds (and an elephant) with one glass. Good deal.

Cocktails for the Planet is an evening of interaction, drinks and good vibrations. All proceeds of the event will go to Earthworm Foundation, who helps manage human-elephant interaction to better protect Malaysia’s remaining pygmy elephants. Throughout the night, participants will have the opportunity to support the organisation by cocktail proxy or by making a donation directly at the event.

The evening’s theme is “welcome to the sustainable jungle”, in honour of the mighty Borneo rainforest, home to some of the rarest and noblest wildlife (orang-utans, pygmy elephants, armadillos, Proboscis monkey - check this last one out). This ecosystem is the fastest disappearing rainforest on the planet today. Facing the irresistible rise of palm oil plantations, the habitat provided by the forest - be it in the ground, on the jungle floor, or in the canopy - is disappearing too fast for the incredible diversity of life there. We need to act now, and there is a way to do it with a smile.

We will provide fingerpaint for the more messy guests, but please feel free to be weird with your outfit and forget to wash your hair for a few days... Maximum jungle effect guaranteed! Oh, and one last thing: there is no plan B for the Borneo jungle.


WHO IS IN?

About Plan A

Plan A is the first data- and community-driven action platform in the fight against climate change. We use data to predict where and how climate change will hit the hardest. Having identified climate issues on a local basis, we connect a community of environmental innovators to provide them with a channel to gather funding from individuals and businesses and implement their solutions in the best conditions.

We have created a space for climate action to thrive. Whether you are a supporter, a project leader, part of a company or a person with an interest in creating change, join us online to interact with a community of like-minded actors of climate action at:

About Elephant Gin

Gin and Elephants. As combinations go, it’s not an obvious one. But Elephant Gin is more than just the obvious choice. The founders were inspired to create Elephant Gin following their own adventures in Africa. With a vision to conserve the wildlife they feel so passionately for, they decided to launch a product that would help conservation trusts. They strongly believe that this generation has a responsibility to support African wildlife today, so others can continue to enjoy it in the future.

About Earthworm Foundation

“Bornean elephants - estimated population of 2000 individuals, restricted at the extreme northeast of Borneo (mostly in Sabah). We work in value chains to transform sourcing and production practices to positively affect our world’s climate, habitats, and people. In landscapes where human and elephant co-exist, tolerance to and management by people (especially smallholders, plantations, communities) of the conflict is the key in long term conservation of the elephants.

Since 2016, their partnership with local stakeholders has been helping farmers to co-exist with endangered Bornean Pygmy elephants using community-based and citizen science approaches. EF's project hopes to save elephant lives, scale up these solutions, and reduce economic loss among the smallholders and plantations in Sabah.”

Earthworm Foundation (EF) formerly known as The Forest Trust (TFT) is a global non-profit organisation that helps companies and communities deliver Responsible Products. We act on the ground in forests, farms and factories to help create products that respect the environment and improve people's lives
