Declare now

Join our collective voices in saying…

We declare that the Earth’s life-supporting systems are in collapse, threatening biodiversity and human societies everywhere.

Alive to the beauty of our planet, we unite to challenge the dominant global power structures that fail to protect us as they disregard scientific consensus, silence marginalised voices and perpetuate ecocide.

As Declarers, we take action to harness the power of arts and culture to express heartfelt truths and address deep-rooted injustices, to care for and create adaptive, resilient and joyful communities, and to influence the urgent and necessary transformation of harmful global systems.

You are invited to adapt this declaration to make it meaningful to your work and context.

By declaring, you support our shared Vision, Mission and Values and will be added as a Declarer on this website.

Welcome on this collective journey of declaration and action in the face of the Climate and Ecological Emergency. We offer a toolkit, events and actions, and local Hubs for you to shape your journey and get more involved.

If declaring as an organisation, ensure you have agreement and that one person is a named liaison. As an individual, simply go ahead and join us! You can sign up, and then later log in again to your profile to add more details and plans.

When announcing your Declaration, you can use our graphics and kitemark on any of your material. Please tag @culturedeclares and use the hashtag #CultureTakesAction on your social posts.
