Join Soumik Datta and Sam Lee as part of Turn up the volume, a week of action and events from Music Declares Emergency, uniting the music industry around climate issues and speaking out together. This event will be hosted by Hawkwood CEO Alicia Carey and Matthew Shaw. MDE continues the tradition of popular music taking a leading role in driving change, following in the footsteps of Rock Against Racism, Free Tibet, Rock The Vote and Warchild.

To create the huge public pressure needed for governments to act urgently on climate, this message must break through the traditional echo-chambers of the climate movement to reach all parts of society. Music has the unique ability to do this.

In April, we will be bringing the music industry together in a huge united call for government action on climate. We will be announcing industry plans and goals for achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, uniting audiences through the advocacy power of artists in a clear call for action.

Music Declares Emergency #TurnUpTheVolume

Music Declares Emergency is an independent group created by music business executives and artists concerned at the lack of a cohesive, industry-wide response to the climate emergency. In July of 2019, it organised an industry-wide declaration of Climate and Ecological Emergency signed by leading artists and businesses within the UK music industry, calling for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and pledging industry action on environmental sustainability.

It believes that the music community can drive forward public understanding and pressure the government to take immediate action on climate and biodiversity loss.

Starting on April 19th, the UK Music industry will reinforce its commitment to action on the climate emergency with a series of announcements and artist reach outs in the week of Earth Day 2021. This event is part of #TurnUpTheVolume week.

Music That Matters

This is the launch event of our #MusicThatMatters series, an online exploration of musicianship with Hawkwood Centre for Future Thinking. The series will be both a place to celebrate art and a place for conversation.
