Arts & Culture declare a
Climate & Ecological Emergency

Culture Declares Emergency is a community of artists & cultural sector individuals & organisations who have declared a climate & ecological emergency. Our mission is to tell the Truth, take Action & seek Justice.

CDE was the first professional sector to make a declaration at the time of our launch in April 2019.

We are now a community of over 1000 and our call to action has been taken up by many sectors including Architects Declare & Music Declares, with whom we collaborate on leveraging change. Read our joint statement here.

Join us! Register your intent to declare and use the declaration text to announce you pledges for action.

Our toolkit provides resources to support the process of your declaration.
