Sam Feldt

Founder

Platinum selling DJ and producer Sam Feldt has been traveling the world ever since his career took off. Being on the road made him realize he wants to leverage his global figure position to inspire his fanbase about environmental issues the world faces and how every individual can adapt changes in his of her lifestyle. Born in a family of activists - from a very young age he learned to make conscious decisions and think about the wellbeing of the planet, but also sees himself as a guinea pig and the best example for the foundation that there is a lot of mis-information about the issues in the world and that change is only possible with a open mind. Among other actions as part of his Give / Do / Inspire / Empower action plan, in 2018 he became the ambassador of the Plastic Promise to reduce the plastic use within his organization.
