When K-pop fandoms unite, they become a powerful voice for climate justice

What is KPOP 4 Planet?

Leading up to COP26 and beyond, Kpop4Planet is a space for all K-pop fandoms to show their passion for climate justice.

K-pop fans have been on the forefront of social justice initiatives- trolling Trump, drowning out racist hashtags on Twitter, educating their faves on cultural appropriation AND fighting for climate justice.

We want to say thank you!

What does climate change have

to do with K-pop?

Climate change affects all of us, that’s why we are asking K-pop fans to step up and demand action!

Harming our
planet

The last thing we want as k-pop fans is to see our idols or ourselves getting sick! However, the same pollution from carbon-emission activities that contribute to greenhouse gases, also increases the risk of infectious, respiratory diseases as well as depression.

Catastrophic weather
events

From record heat waves in South Korea, destructive floods and typhoons in the Philippines and Indonesia, hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, extensive droughts in South Africa, accelerating glacier melting in Norway – climate change increases and intensifies these extreme weather events.It thus severely threatens the livelihoods of our idols, fans, and everyone on Earth.

Endangering
wildlife

Due to the symbiotic relationship between climate change and natural habitat loss from increasing forest fires and deforestation, no matter how many K-pop fan projects come together to plant trees, create forests or adopt endangered animals, nowhere will be safe if we do not fight climate change.

What can K-pop fans do

to fight the climate crisis?

No one could replace your bias, neither can we replace the Earth. Let’s work together to create a better and sustainable life for all of us.

Practice daily
eco-friendly habits

By using public transportation, saving water, energy or electricity, implementing the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), every single little action fans take contributes to a better world.

Use your
voice

Say it louder, clearer, and more often! Demand those in power make policies for a sustainable world. As a global citizen, urge your government to establish and follow solid and ambitious climate policies. As a consumer, pressure banks, corporations and companies to move away from funding or using fossil fuels.

Support the
movement

Our planet is at a crossroads. It is time to move together with our idols and fandoms to fight for climate justice. Find a climate action group around your community, participate in local or global initiatives, and like and follow @KPOP4Planet social for further news and activities.

Korean stars demand

climate action

K-pop stars and their fans have a great track record in raising awareness on climate change and calling for action. Here’s just a few examples:

August 2020, Red Velvet, an ambassador of the UN International Day of Clean Air for blue skies, called for clean air for all.
