"Climate change affects everyone, regardless of what industry you’re in or what kind of work you do." - Greg Consiglio, Beatport CEO (Billboard)

The World Climate Change Conference is currently underway in Paris in what is basically the super bowl of climate change talks. And while it's our world leaders who are gathering in Paris, we are all part of climate change discussions and solutions. Whether you are a DJ on tour or a fan traveling to a festival or the organizers behind an EDM event, we all have footprints on the environment and are therefore responsible for being informed and getting involved in the conversation.

Today, Beatport is uniting the world through music in support of this message. The EDM store is spreading awareness and celebrating what we hope will be positive outcomes from the Paris talks. The company has teamed up with some of EDM's top DJs for a worldwide livestream, featuring exclusive mixes and playlists assembled by participating artists.

"Electronic music has become a global phenomenon over the last couple years, and it just seems like a real good fit for this cause... If you’re thinking about celebrating the environment and celebrating what could come out of Paris, what better way to do it than a dance party?” Consiglio told Billboard.

Fans around the world are invited to tune in and share images and messages using the #ListenParis2015, #EarthToParis and #Go100Percent. If you're feeling really inspired, you can organize a silent disco through listen2015.typeform.com or join one through silentdiscosquad.com.

The worldwide livestream started today Saturday, December 5th at 11am ET and will last for 24 hours.

"...the same music, at the same time, in support of the same message." (Sullivan)
