Getting to Live Earth Tokyo: ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s How You Get There That Counts!
Live Earth is committed to producing the most eco-friendly series of concerts possible. To do this, we are taking important steps to minimize each concertÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s carbon footprint, from powering the stage with clean energy, transporting artists to the venue in low-emission, alternative fuel vehicles, and encouraging ticket holders to take advantage of their public transportation options.
Audience travel accounts for the vast majority of a concertÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s impact on our climate Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as much as 50%!Ã‚Â You can ANSWER THE CALL to reduce carbon emissions by taking the train or bus to Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex, or by carpooling with 4 or more people.Ã‚Â
The most efficient way to reduce travel emissions to Makuhari Messe is to catch the bus or train, and we have outlined your mass transit options below.Ã‚Â Please book early to make sure that you get to the concert on time.
