Green Day’s Commitment to Social Justice and the Environment

Green Day, the five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning rock superstars, have long been champions of social justice and environmental causes. Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, the band has garnered immense popularity, selling over 75 million records worldwide and accumulating 10 billion audio/visual streams. Their 14th studio album, “Saviors,” released on January 19, 2024, debuted at No.1 on seven different Billboard charts and marked their fifth No.1 in the UK. Known for their electrifying performances, Green Day will kick off their global stadium tour, “The Saviors Tour,” on May 30, featuring performances of their iconic albums “Dookie” and “American Idiot” in their entirety, alongside tracks from “Saviors” and fan favorites.

The Right Here, Right Now Mini Global Climate Concert Series

The Right Here, Right Now Mini Global Climate Concert Series aims to spotlight the human rights-based approaches and solutions to climate change.

Recognition from Global Leaders

Through a press release provided by the Recording Academy® organizers say, “We are pleased to recognize Green Day and excited for the incredible band to help us launch the international Right Here, Right Now Mini Global Climate Concert Series,” states Volker Türk, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. “As world-renowned artists and activists, Green Day continues to leverage its major influence and platform to bring awareness to the impact of climate change on the people and the environment. The United Nations was founded in San Francisco almost 80 years ago to safeguard human rights and dignity from crisis and tragedy. It is only fitting that we are back in San Francisco promoting human rights-based approaches and solutions to the climate crisis as co-hosts along with the Recording Academy.”

David Clark, founder and CEO of Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance, said, “It’s a privilege and honor to have Green Day headline the Right Here, Right Now Mini Global Climate Concert in San Francisco. We selected the band, as Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool have been at the forefront [of] promoting social justice initiatives for decades. When iconic artists like Green Day leverage their global platform to promote climate justice, the world takes notice. In their new song Saviors, they mention they’re ‘the last of the rockers making a commotion,’ which we’re all grateful for.  I believe when you stand for something – you stand out, and they certainly do!”

Supporting Climate Justice Initiatives

Proceeds from the Right Here, Right Now Mini Global Climate Concerts will support United Nations Human Rights climate justice initiatives and a dedicated climate fund at MusiCares® to aid musicians affected by climate change.

Joining Forces for a Better World

Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy, emphasized music’s power to effect positive change and expressed gratitude for Green Day’s commitment to promoting social justice.
