Weʼre raising £3,000 to hold CHOPIN in the CLOUDS with your Message in a Bottle - a Thousand Wishes for a Healthier World - in recycled P.E.T. bottle concert hall
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are concerned about plastic waste but believe it can be put to good use.
We are a small team of musicians, and environmentalists based in Camden Market, London.
In August 2016 we built the first recycled plastic bottle greenhouse in Northern India at 3,250 metres.
Now we plan to show that with good design thousands of discarded P.E.T. bottles that litter the landscape can be turned into rescue shelters, greenhouses and irrigation systems in the Himalayas.
On September 6th, 2018, to raise media awareness, we will build a small concert hall for "Chopin in the Clouds", the highest concert in India at 5,000 meters and then take the sectional building complete with a grand piano to a pioneering environmental college teaching sustainable development. The re-erected building will be used as a greenhouse in the grounds of the college and the grand piano will be a gift for their new music hall.
Please help to make this project a success with a small donation (£3) and your message for the future to be included in one of the bottles used.
Please join us with:
Your message in a bottle
A Thousand Wishes for a Healthier World.
Prototype building developed with help of Eric Schrijuer, architect, at "Welcome to the Village" festival. Lueewarden. 2018.
