WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO JOIN MUSIC DECLARES EMERGENCY?

Making a declaration of emergency is an independent decision for each individual or organization, and can be done in any way that is right for you/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. It does not mean joining any specific group or committing to any actions beyond your limits.

If you are an organization, it does require consultation of your senior team or board of trustees, and acknowledgement that the declaration itself is only one step in understanding and developing a response to the climate emergency.
