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.


"Because we are at the edge of no return when it comes to climate change. If we do not act now our future and the future of all living things on this planet are at risk."
TSHA
"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
"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
"More needs to be done. We invite everyone to stand up for change. Change that protects this world we live in. Change that could secure our survival and the survival of Earth itself.
It’s been long enough, affirmative action must start now. We can choose to save this planet.
"
Zaahj
"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
"Now is the time for action at Government level."
The BRIT School
"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
"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
"Its time to galvanise our collective voice, intelligence & influence and demand change."
From the Fields / bluedot / Kendal Calling
"I whole heartedly believe we have space for compassion and inclusivity in our future politics. After all, this is a 'democracy'. We decide. "
Ciara Gayer
"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
"“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
"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)
"Revolution begins at home. Change yourself and the rest will follow."
Pretenders
"It’s time we all played our part, and in raising awareness of the emergency we’re facing "
37 Adventures
"This shit is crazy!!"
Kathleen Hanna
"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
"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
"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
"We are amidst a climate emergency, and we are doing irreversible damage to our planet and our colleagues in the trees, in the oceans, in the air, and on the land. This needs to stop."
Josh Semans / ondes Martenot
"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
"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
"I think it’s important to support this cause because I’m personally interested in survival and the survival of my children."
Hot Chip
"The earlier we act to confront the climate emergency the less painful it will be. Time is running out."
Cooking Vinyl Ltd
"It’s time the government took real action and for the industry to play its part in affecting change. "
Jazz re:freshed
"This is the only thing that's important. If our climate breaks down further, it impacts all of our future. "
Sound Diplomacy
"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
"Because I believe we all have to act and support action - before it’s too late "
Hannah Joseph
"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
"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
"Shift happens...now is the time to be part of reclaiming the future"
Matt Black, Coldcut
"I believe this is by far the most important issue facing the world today. "
George FitzGerald
"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
"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
"We need to keep this planet alive."
Nitin Sawhney
"This is a tipping point. It feels like this could be a moment to change the narrative..."
Arthur Jeffes, Penguin Cafe
"In a world on fire, we need to come together to create change. The time is now."
Greenbelt Festival
"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
"We all need to be part of this for the future of the planet. "
Sarah Jane Morris
"We are committed to do all we can. We applaud XR and Music Declares for their leadership and urgent agenda."
Lo Recordings
"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
"It's time we all become free agents of change to save our planet."
Ciara Leah
"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
"Because we want to help manifest change"
Pumarosa
"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
"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
"I love this planet"
Sandie Shaw Honorary President of Featured Artist Coalition
"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
"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
"We need to all stand together , music has the power to transform difficult situations such as this "
Movingsounds -Lex
"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
"If the world doesn't exist because we have ruined our planet, their wont be anymore music."
Geoff Travis

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/

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.
