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.
Enough time has been wasted - we must all face up to the whole truths regarding rapid climate change and species extinction and act now.
Music is a powerful tool that can be used for good. We all need to play our part if the planet is to survive.

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.
Those in power lack leadership and will. I'm hoping that pressure from a big group of people, united by common sense, can force them to make the changes needed for survival.
Now is the time for action at Government level.
