Positive Legacy

One World United Through Music

At The Beach 2017 Recap

Read more about the 2017 initiatives in the tiles below or get the full in-depth report from our adventure by visiting Positive Legacy's website.

We had a great day working with our partner, Dreams for Mayan Children, in the nearby community of Dos Palmas! We broke into groups and spent the morning scattering seeds in the school’s garden beds, painting classroom walls and a mural at the school, and cleaning up the grounds and soccer field. After our hard work we went for a dip in a breathtaking cenote of gorgeous blue water. We were treated to a traditional Mayan lunch and closed out the day with an awe-inspiring Temazcal ceremony and musical performance by the school children.
We are pleased to announce that Positive Legacy was able to raise over $30,000 in this year’s silent and live charity auction! The auction proceeds will go to support Positive Legacy’s environmental & humanitarian projects such as Dreams for Mayan Children. Thank you to all of the At The Beach fans who bid in the auction. A special thank you to the musicians and their management, the fan/artists for supporting the auction with their custom donations and to Josh Timmermans and Dave Vann for their amazing photography.
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Mexico for At The Beach. We appreciate those that donated to the carbon offset program in 2017. Your donations support a community tree nursery that is producing 10,000 trees a year for rural communities on the north coast of Haiti, providing the sequestration of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions. You can offset your carbon footprint by making a donation when booking your 2018 reservation.
