Auction for Climate Action
Auction for Climate Action is a voluntary initiative for our climate, generating donations by auctioning art & design for climate protection projects.
The auction takes place primarily on respective posts on Instagram (following buttons) and will additionally be displayed here in the posts, on Facebook and on LinkedIn so that others can bid as well, depending on the contact option of the of the artist or designer. In addition, donation income is possible via Live-Events.
How does it work?
Artists or designers can offer a work of art or object for auction without further fees. Anyone and everyone has the opportunity to bid for these works and donates incidentally for our climate.
With this form of auction, everyone involved benefits! A work of art or design object finds a new home and the lucky owner reimburses the artist and donates for climate protection measures.
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?
100% of the proceeds will be donated to non-profit organizations active in climate action and selected by the advertiser – the only condition is that they are generally recognized and cooperate with Auction for Climate Action. 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.
