Music Declares Emergency

Music Declares Emergency is a group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations that stand together to declare a climate and ecological emergency and call for an immediate governmental response to protect all life on Earth. We believe in the power of music to promote the cultural change needed to create a better future.


"“Get only what you give back." My acapella song Earth speaks in the first person, Mother Earth sharing how she feels about us making a mess of this in our teenage human evolution years. She reminds us we “get only what you give back” and she’s getting pretty fed up. Let’s not give her any more excuses to teach us a lesson! "
Imogen Heap
"If we neglect to stand for the protection of our world environment and overall global health, we will fall prey to the irreversible repercussions to all living things for generations to come. This effort is an opportunity to join together as a musical mankind to make a powerful and unified statement...that which reflects the very essence of life and love. To the call, we respond - YES!!! Thank you "
Midlake
"If ever there was a moment for all humankind to rise up and take action together its Now. The wailing alarm bells for the future of our beautiful planet and all life upon it are deafening. Music connects us across all borders. We have a global voice and a massive responsibility. We'll pull together. "
Deluxxe Management/Ideal Music Prodns
"All of us at Serious want to work together for music and change"
SERIOUS
"Because we must all join in if there is any chance of making change."
We Out Here Festival, Outlook Festival, Dimensions Festival
"This is no woke bandwagon everybody. If we don't join into one big unstoppable force of public opinion and press our governments for massive change RIGHT NOW human life will be changed irrevocably for the worse within a generation. Listen to the teenagers. They know it will soon be too late."
Neil Hannon
"We at Memphis Industries want to keep bringing the joy of music to people without the environmental cost that comes with it. To find solutions to the myriad ways in which the music industry has a negative impact on the environment will take individual and collective action, and it is time that everyone took a stand. "
Memphis Industries
"We urgently need to address the ecological crisis. Music has the power to bring about change, and Big Life has always encouraged its artists to reduce their environmental impacts and use their platform to inspire others to do the same. We need to work together as an industry to call on governments to bring about the systemic change needed both locally and globally."
Big Life Management
"It’s blatantly obvious to me why we have to call an Environmental Emergency.
I believe if nothing is done soon Global warming will lead to mass human migration leading to. Conflict on a global scale. We must act now.
"
Geoff Barrow
"Because we want to help manifest change"
Pumarosa
"Grassroots Music Venues are the community hubs and spaces of our towns and cities; they play an important role in bringing together and inspiring local communities. Music Venue Trust believes that these venues must seize the opportunity to take action on the Climate Emergency, and play a lead role in engaging the music industry and the public in the climate debate. "
Music Venue Trust
"There is no doubt that we are facing a global climate emergency, the effects of which are becoming ever clearer in our daily lives. It is crucial that we do everything we can to change our own behaviours and the behaviours of the world’s biggest corporations, and that we influence governments in order to secure a positive future for our planet."
Association of Independent Music (AIM)
"The climate is changing, we must respond quickly, and protect this beautiful earth we share with so many heavenly creatures and plants. We must act, otherwise we shall have no one to blame but ourselves."
Tom Odell
"This is a tipping point. It feels like this could be a moment to change the narrative..."
Arthur Jeffes, Penguin Cafe
"No planet, no life.
No future, no life.
Positive action yields positive results.
Time for action.
"
The Bug
"Because I care.... I care about people, and I care about this beautiful Planet. I’m in ore of it, respect it and am worried about what some reckless leaders around the world are doing to it. I have kids, and I want their future to be as magical as my experience has been here so far. I’m great full MUSIC DECLARES EMERGENCY has been set up, so I’m singing . Thank You ! "
Nick Launay
"Right now we don’t know if the forces moving us toward a kinder, more benevolent world- a truly life sustaining society- are galvanising faster than those of the Great Unravelling of the earth’s system that we see happening before us- across our landscapes and in our communities. That is why these times are of great uncertainty. This is why I have signed this declaration. It has sickened me over the years to see music so cheapened and in service of dead ideologies - “unlimited growth at all cost” etc. The madness is stopping and music is coming alive again. "
Nick Mulvey
"I believe this is by far the most important issue facing the world today. "
George FitzGerald
"We all need to play our part in the coming emergency and the music industry is no exception. Indeed I think performers have a particular responsibility to use their platforms to oppose a heads-in-the-sand response to the extremely difficult times ahead"
Jon Boden
"I think it’s important to support this cause because I’m personally interested in survival and the survival of my children."
Hot Chip
"I love this planet"
Sandie Shaw Honorary President of Featured Artist Coalition
"This is the only thing that's important. If our climate breaks down further, it impacts all of our future. "
Sound Diplomacy
"Shift happens...now is the time to be part of reclaiming the future"
Matt Black, Coldcut
"This is the most important and pressing issue we face collectively as a planet. Our duty to all life on Earth means we must turn all our resources and creative wisdom to shifting our tired and entrenched pattern of destruction toward something that allows for harmony between all living things. We owe it to ourselves and we owe it to our children and their children. We are not being good ancestors unless we act now. "
Johnny Flynn
"The environment, the planet, nature, the woods, streams, wilds, my kids, my future grandkids, people everywhere are at the core of my art, my music, and my existence. It is time we take a stand, come together, and take a stand."
S. Carey
"Revolution begins at home. Change yourself and the rest will follow."
Pretenders
"As artists, organisations and individuals involved in music, we are in a position where we can positively influence our audiences and fans to unite with us to fight climate change. At Sound City we want to work together with everyone in our industry and beyond to make a huge positive change to this life and Earth threatening predicament."
Sound City
"There has never been more urgency for the music industry to work together, have a collective voice to Government and produce an overarching strategy and resources for the changes we need to make collectively to reduce environmental impacts.
"
Association of Independent Festivals
"It’s vital that we back this campaign. The threat from climate change is real and we all need to play our part in combatting it. Music may not have the impact of some other industries, but we can still do more to reduce our own carbon footprint and use our platform to spread the message that action needs to be taken. Mike Smith, MD"
Warner Chappell Music UK
"This is, by far, the most important issue of our time and every and any positive action is crucial to generate the required momentum to address the current catastrophe!"
Shambala Festival
"This shit is crazy!!"
Kathleen Hanna
"Music is a powerful tool that can be used for good. We all need to play our part if the planet is to survive."
English Folk Dance and Song Society
"To help get the plastic-free party started!"
BLOND:ISH
"Kings Place is committed to the collective effort to protect the earth for all its inhabitants for generations to come. We are proud to join so many other organisations and individuals, united by music and the common cause of saving the planet. "
Kings Place
"It’s time the government took real action and for the industry to play its part in affecting change. "
Jazz re:freshed
"The whole world needs to change....
Music has the ability to spread this beautiful and ultimately universal message with, speed, ease and instinctual meaning..
"
Meadows In The Mountains
" The time is now. We must act swiftly and urgently to save our planet. Every choice we make individually and collectively has an impact. Let’s set the bar."
Veruca Salt
"It's time for all organisations in society to urgently take meaningful action to reduce impacts show leadership and inspire change at this critical moment in history. Collaboration is essential - Music Declares brings many parts of an influential industry together to form a strong voice and platform for change."
Powerful Thinking
"The future of our earth is on the line. Being an advocate for sustainability is why I signed up to Music Declares Emergency. Every opportunity to take action in support of improving our ecological conditions is a gift. "
Carleen Anderson
"The earlier we act to confront the climate emergency the less painful it will be. Time is running out."
Cooking Vinyl Ltd
"We need to keep this planet alive."
Nitin Sawhney
"We treasure records so that the next generation can enjoy them just as we have. The environment we live in should be no different. Without our planet, there will be no music. Let's use music to stop the unimaginable from happening. This shit is horrifyingly real - we must not stay silent. "
Rough Trade
"If the world doesn't exist because we have ruined our planet, there won't be anymore music."
Geoff Travis
"It's clearly a massively important issue and makes sense that the music industry comes together to campaign, grow and share this emergency with the world. I would particularly like to see an initiative developed for musicians to cut down their carbon footprint when touring, ranging from small to large scale tours."
Independent Music Law Advice
"It's high time the music business took the intiative in some of these crucial environmental, cultural and political issues facing the UK and more importantly, the planet. For too long, we have been too passive. But we can not rely on governments to look after the planet, they can barely look after themselves."
Bella Union Records
"Music is universal. Music is a benign contagion, spread far and wide, uncontrolled and uncontrollable by the powers that be. Little music, big music, music in major, minor, every key and every language, the most powerful of human cultural endeavors. Let's USE IT. "
Peggy Seeger
"Its great we're getting properly focused on this now. Reducing our ecological footprint needs to be part of everything we do from now on. And governments must help us!"
Ninja Tune
"When I was a little girl, playing in the fields in southwestern Ontario, which species was extinct? The Dodo and the Passenger Pigeon. In my lifetime, and I will be 79 soon, see how much and how many have been lost. What will be left for my children and grandchildren?"
Bonnie Dobson
"For my daughter"
Will Varley
"Now is the time for action at Government level."
The BRIT School
"Its time to galvanise our collective voice, intelligence & influence and demand change."
From the Fields / bluedot / Kendal Calling
"In a world on fire, we need to come together to create change. The time is now."
Greenbelt Festival
"Music has the power to inspire people to change, a change that is urgently needed as our world heads towards rapid climate breakdown. Everyone working in the music and events industry needs to come together to make a difference. The time is now."
Mary Corfield, Ethical Event Management
"There might never have been an issue that singularly unites the artistic community more than the need to address climate change and acknowledge the environmental crisis we are experiencing locally and globally. Never has there been an issue where our collective effort could be more impactful on the lives of those living today and those not yet born. If there was to be only one reason whereby having an audience that follows our lead mattered and could bring about collective change in our society surely this would be it and the right time to do it. "
Sam Lee
"Opera North believes that music, and specifically opera, can forge shifts in the ways we relate to one another, our environment and the world. In signing up to this climate emergency we want to show our passion and commitment to this declaration and we call on others within our industry to do the same."
Opera North
"As musicians in the public eye, showing solidarity together on this devastating inevitable situation, may help bring wider awareness via our fans and the industry that we are a part of. "
Tunng
"MDE and all those that sign up to declare a Climate & Ecological Emergency is a start. It’s important as it puts a flag in the ground and opens up the debate needed to be had within the music industry. Ultimately we all need changes only governments and large fossil fuel corporations can enact but by declaring a Climate Emergency we are stating that we as a sector we truly know about the problem and give confidence to those within the industry and other sectors of society to discuss, declare and reimagine how we might move forward. "
Full Time Hobby
"I‘m supporting this positive call The message..... Bring change - Build a fully carbon neutral, post petroleum all recycled World 🌎 . It can still be Day-Glo. "
Jon More (Coldcut)

Music Declares Emergency is a group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations.

We believe that

The continued rise in greenhouse gas emissions and the ongoing devastation of the natural world constitute a clear and present threat to life on Earth.

That an immediate governmental response is necessary to protect all life from climate and ecological catastrophe.

Music, musicians and music businesses, through their unique cultural and economic power, can lead the way in demanding the systemic changes required to secure all life on earth.

We call on all those within the industry to join us in declaring a climate emergency and to work towards making the cultural and operational changes necessary to contribute towards a carbon neutral future.

Who Are We

Music Declares Emergency (MDE) is an independent group, created by artists, music industry professionals and organisations concerned at the lack of a cohesive, industry-wide response to the climate emergency.

MDE represents all areas of the music industry irrespective of genre, role, gender, race or sexuality and is led by individuals united by a deep concern for the climate and ecological emergency we currently face. We recognize that the music industry, due to its unique challenges needs its own group to drive this debate.

MDE is an independent group that includes individuals who have been directly inspired by, or involved in, Extinction Rebellion (XR) and Culture Declares Emergency, as well as members of leading music and environmental charity, Julie’s Bicycle and other music industry professionals. Julie’s Bicycle have worked for many years with organisations and independent professionals across the UK and internationally to embed environmental sustainability into their operations, creative work, and business practice.

Though MDE draws inspiration, support, and resources from XR and Julie's Bicycle it operates an independent decision-making process. MDE is a democratically led organisation run by volunteers. Anyone in the industry can get involved.

Is it legal to make a
Declaration of Emergency?

The UK Parliament has declared a climate emergency as well as dozens of councils across the political spectrum, including the Greater London Authority, Bristol and Manchester: climateemergency.uk

Making a ‘declaration of emergency’ is an independent decision for each individual or organisation, and can be done in any way that is right for you or your organisation. It means publicly announcing your concerns, lending your voice to the chorus calling for more ambitious political action, and following up by taking action on your own environmental impacts within your remit. Declaring a Climate and Ecological Emergency does not mean endorsing any specific group or endorsing any illegal action.

Finance, Funding, and Donations

Out Fundrazr page was set up to help raise money for initial start-up costs like printing, promotional material and for hosting a launch event. As we grow, we plan to use donations to organize round-table forums and larger scale Music Declares Emergency events. Our accounts are available on request. Control of finance is held equally between core members of the MDE working group and all decisions about spending are accountable to all members of MDE. https://fundrazr.com/

For more information on how to get involved with MDE email: [email protected]
For more information about Extinction Rebellion go to https://rebellion.earth
For more information about Julie’s Bicycle go to https://juliesbicycle.com


Actions

These are some suggestions of how you can support your declaration through action. Keep shouting about the Climate and Ecological Emergency. Take individual actions alongside resolute political engagement. What that looks like will be as varied as our community. Individual actions might not add up to much without systemic change, but they can help pave the way there by modelling the world we want to see and opening up more conversations to make a noise. Don’t feel like you have to do everything at once. As a music community, our collective actions and voices will ring out as one.
