Auction for Climate Action
Auction for Climate Action is a voluntary initiative, generating donations by auctioning art & design for climate protection projects.
There are three ways in which donations can be generated:
1) There are several possibilities via live events, but especially live auctions.
2) Art can be presented at exhibitions in restaurants, doctor practices, salons, etc., with simultaneous online auctions through us.
3) Online auctions can take place again as soon as we have reached a certain size and visibility. These will mainly take place in the respective posts on Instagram. They will also be displayed here as (Instagram) posts (buttons below) and on Facebook and on LinkedIn so that others can also bid. There are various contact options for the creative contributors. so that others can bid as well, depending on the contact option of the of the artist or designer.
How does it work?
Artists or designers can offer a work of art or object for auction without any additional fees. At the online auctions, everyone has the opportunity to bid for these works via a platform or by email and donate to our climate „on the side“.
Everyone involved benefits from this form of auction! Works of art or design objects find a new home and the happy owners reimburse the financial costs (as stated or 10% of the bid, whichever is more) for the artists and donate to climate protection measures. The bid is simply written to the artist in the social media posts or by email.
The works are carefully curated with expertise.
For all payments, please note the reference „AfCA, date of auction“ so that NGOs know it is auction proceeds. Thank you!

What happens to the proceeds?
The proceeds will be donated directly to cooperating non-profit organizations active in climate action and selected by the advertiser. Measures for species protection and environmental protection are part of the climate protection projects, they are interdependent.
This means that every euro goes to a good cause. Along the way, the artists get the opportunity to make an even bigger impact with their art. The bidders will forever associate a special story with the artwork.
There are no further costs. Climate protection is a matter close to our hearts, which is why Art & Design is offered voluntary without any fees. The transaction takes place directly and without any detours between the advertiser and the bidder. The proceeds will go entirely and directly to the organization selected by the creative adjuster. We are not involved.
