The Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance has announced Green Day will headline the second Right Here, Right Now Mini Global Climate Concert to be presented by United Nations Human Rights and The Recording Academy at The Fillmore in San Francisco on April 2.

The ecologically driven concert aims to combat the human rights crisis resulting from climate change.

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

Wesley Schultz, lead singer and co-founder of the two-time Grammy-nominated band the Lumineers headlined the event last year, with six-time Grammy-nominated artist Yola making an appearance as a special guest.

“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,” said 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.”

David Clark, founder and CEO of Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance, added, “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 promoting social justice initiatives for decades.”
