If you have ever attended the Coachella Music & Arts festival, chances are you probably participated in a Global Inheritance program. Maybe you won Coachella passes for life by carpooling with friends or fed recyclable bottles to a 40 ft robotic t-rex or even drank purified wastewater at the Oasis Water Bar.

For over a decade, the organization has developed environmental + educational programs like these to empower festival attendees and bring attention to global issues. From playground-powered DJ mixers and fortune-telling polar bears to redesigned recycling bins and Saving Nature arcades, Global Inheritance strives year after year to raise the bar in inspirational and thought-provoking experiences. The initiatives are a joint effort between the nonprofit and the music festival to both inspire individuals as well as reduce the event’s environmental impact.
