Launched in March of 2021, Kpop4Planet has grown into a global platform passionate about improving the state of the planet for the next generation.
“Kpop4Planet is a platform that we created for those who enjoy K-pop music (or other aspects of Korean culture) and also have a desire to fight for climate justice together”Nurul Sarifah (Kpop4Planet organizer; Jakarta, Indonesia)
Throughout K-Pop fan culture, fans have united to address serious social issues.
- For example, in 2021, ARMY matched the BTS members’ contributions by donating $1 million for the Black Lives Matter Movement.
With a strong sense of community, unity, and hope, the K-Pop genre has long encouraged activism and taking action for a better world.
The Kpop4Planet platform is currently serving to spotlight the social work that K-Pop fans are doing and centralize that force on particular projects for an enhanced effect and impact.
“Our generation is the one that is facing the climate crisis and solidarity beyond all borders is very important because this kind of collective action is desperately needed for the climate crisis”Sarifah
Kpop4Planet Projects include:
- A campaign for increased climate awareness within the K-Pop entertainment industry- through the No K-POP on a Dead Planet campaign.
- A petition to halt the development of a coal plant near the beach in BTS’ “Butter” album cover.
- The project has sent an official appeal for Tokopedia (one of the top eco-commerce platforms in Indonesia) to transition to renewable energy by 2030.
Fandoms included in the effort include Carat, EXO-L, ARMY, STAY, Fantasy, MOA, BLINK, NCTzen, Monbebe, Shawol, among others.
“With the global fan’s force, ultimately, we want to campaign asking the government, business, and ourselves as global citizens to take more advanced action, not limiting us to talk about the entertainment industry”Surifah
